10 Clever Ways to Fake High-end Looks With Dollar Store Finds!

Step 2: Create the Base

Turn one pot upside down and add glue to the base. Stick the second pot onto it the right way up. Bases of the same size allow a uniform effect. Another factor to consider is that the pots need to be wide and strong enough to support the wooden top without falling over.

Step 3: Paint

For the high-end look I wanted, I used Rust-Oleum’s silver metallic finish. A gold or copper color would shine just as well. Spray a uniform layer onto the glued pots. Then get your wooden panel and add the varnish. Once everything is dry, it’s time for the project’s final step.

Step 4: Attach the Top

Add glue to the rim of the upper pot and then stick on the panel. A light-weight top and centralized placement will make sure your side table stays upright when more items are put on it. One way to glue the two parts together with precision is to mark the underside of the panel first

DIY Basket

Tools and Materials

  • Candlestick
  • Round glass coaster
  • Basket
  • Spray paint
  • Burner cover
  • A knob-like item

Step 1: Gather Your Materials

I used a glass candlestick and coaster for their shape and weight. As the base of this DIY home décor, they need to be able to support the basket, lid, and whatever contents are added when the project is completed. The spray paint I applied is a Krylon pale green.

Step 2: Create the Base

Get your E6000 glue, stick the coaster onto the candlestick, and the basket onto the coaster. I chose a metal basket to give my project a more stable structure. Let the glue dry and then add the spray paint. Make sure it’s a uniform layer all over, including inside the basket.

Step 3: Create the Top

It doesn’t matter what the burner cover looks like because you’ll be painting over it. What’s important is that it’s the right size to serve as a lid for the basket. Glue whatever you chose for a knob onto the top of the burner cover. And paint it all the same color as the base.

Step 4: Assemble

Use the DIY basket as storage for keys or fill it with more decorative materials, like moss or fairy lights. Try different combinations of dollar store finds and colors to create the perfect ornament to complement your home. Why not make two? Each set on either side of a balcony.
