Easy soap stand

Lydia comes up with an elegant soap stand for her tub.

“I wanted to pass along something I just completed – while I’m using it as tub decor, you can easily take the idea to make cake stands out of any plate and candlestick with a wide enough top. I started with the shorter Skimmer candlestick and a Smarta pie plate from Ikea. I painted both purple and glued together with Gorilla Glue. Added some lavender soaps and bath accessories and voila!”
