Cutiest Christmas Tree stand Ever!



THIRFT Store $5 bucks....(it was $10 but the lady down there loves me and i only had $5, Sooo SOLD to me for $5 dolla)

I painted it all white, and then with my jigsaw i cut out a circle big enough for my tree to fit in it. The drawers open up, so i put the stand in it and then placed the tree in the hole into the stand. Wall-la. FYI, do this before you have your tree all put together and all the decorations on it. MUCHO easier im sure!!


After i painted it white and sanded the edges and stained all of it. I LOVE it.. Ooops forgot to put the knobs back on!
I love the stars on it!

Im in love with my tree topper. its so diffrent, i love it!

The little stinkers kept trying to sneak in so here is a picture of the cutties!!

This is wonderful! I'm curious - do you have trouble with the tree "wobbling" around in the hole? How do you make it secure?
