At practically every thrift store and yard sale, I come upon these lonely chafing dish legs. The poor things have lost their chafing dishes and nobody loves them.
But they're so beautiful! Vintage silverplate, gorgeous lines, myriad styles. I can't resist buying them. One of my favorite uses: just add earrings.
For more vavoom, I like to fill the empty center with a vase or live plant. Just place it on that little platform where the heat source would go.
Another great option: place a little dish in the center, for storing bracelets-n-stuff.
Aren't they delightful, these lovely, lonely legs? I love them mucho. I will continue to buy them and make them feel useful.
