How to Make A DIY Farmhouse Riser

Ok, ok. So maybe the piz­za pan DIY’s are over done. But just hear me out for a sec­ond. This lit­tle piz­za pan farm­house ris­er is far from look­ing cheap. It’s all in the styling. So if you’re look­ing for a lit­tle some­thin some­thin to spruce up your cof­fee table or kitchen island this Spring, give this piz­za pan …I mean farm­house ris­er a chance.

I start­ed by sand­ing the sur­face of the piz­za pan to give the met­al a lit­tle grit for the paint to stick to. I did­n’t real­ize this when I start­ed but I rec­om­mend sand­ing down these par­tic­u­lar knobs as well…ask me how I know. (In the video tuto­r­i­al you will notice that the paint did not stick to the knobs the first time. I end­ed up hav­ing to sand them light­ly and paint them again.)

Then I applied the faux pearl gems around the edge of the pan for a cute hob­nail effect. These lit­tle gems came with adhe­sive on the back but I decid­ed to rein­force them with a lit­tle dab of super glue. Bet­ter safe than sorry. 

I did the same with the wood­en knobs for the bot­tom of the tray .

Once the glue was dry, it was time for spray paint. I used what I had on hand for this step. I do rec­om­mend a paint/primer or a chalky fin­ish paint that cov­ers well.

I could hard­ly wait for the paint to dry on this pret­ty lit­tle ris­er. All that was left to do was styling, which is my favorite part! Recent­ly I decid­ed to bring some of my favorite types of home decor togeth­er in one beau­ti­ful lit­tle Home Goods Mar­ket. We launch in SPRING 2021!
