Sure, we go nuts for vintage eBay scores and the latest runway trends, but there's nothing that stops R29ers dead in their tracks faster than some good ol' food porn. So, when Erica and Lauren of HonestlyWTF launched their equally delicious blog, HonestlyYUM, we just had to drop everything. Each week, we'll spotlight their creative concoctions. Go ahead, try to look away — we dare you.
I’ve been wanting to make my own tiered dessert stand for awhile now. However, the risk of potentially cracking perfectly precious vintage plates was seriously limiting my motivation. So after much research and time spent at the hardware store, I’ve found a foolproof way to safely drill holes into porcelain. You’ll need a power drill and perhaps another set of hands, but trust me, it’s totally worth it and actually super easy. Plus, they make fabulous gifts for mom!
