Homie, AmalaaFish was gifted a cake stand, and what she did with it has me re-considering how I deal with gifted items that initially aren't my style.

"I was given a free cake stand that just reminded me too much of my mom's photos from the '70s, so a little can of spray paint later and…

After…this is what I get! Now, it wasn't the blue I wanted but it will do for now. No primer or anything, just clean and spray! (Okay so I did tape tissue paper around the neck to prevent weird markings from the slotted top)."
