DIY Decorative Soap Holder

I love the idea of utilizing items for a purpose other than what was originally intended… cork boards for keeping jewellery, paint chips as artwork and cookie sheets as magnetic boards.  One that I’ve been seeing a lot of lately is using cake stands for storage.  I decided to use a DIY cake stand as a decorative soap holder in the kitchen.
