To do you'll need:
spray paint/whatever paint in desired color
and E9000 or gorilla glue...(something really strong)
I purchased this not-so-cute SHINY baby from Goodwill....
Ewww, the color looks like it got dipped in acid or something
looks kinds cheap-y, NOT FEELING IT AT ALL!
Again, I forgot the Before picture but you can clearly see this ATROCIOUS color I speak of..
But HER curves were kickin'.... and she had such a great base.....
Perfect for this little project!
Well, when I found her I knew what she would be used for and I then began to look for the perfect plate to go on top.
Preferably white, not completely flat, a few curves for a nice look...
then I spotted a beaut' but wasn't gonna pay $2 for one single plate...........................??
It's Goodwill people, I'm a CHEAPO :) Just kidding I have been hunting goodwill long enough to know a good deal!
Keep Calm and Search on!
There she was, a single CHRISTMAS plate, no one's gonna buy 1 christmas plate. RIGHT??
Kinda like a 3 legged puppy amongst all the other cute puppies :( She would always be the last to be picked.
WELL NOT TODAY!!!! "NOBODY PUTS BABY IN THE CORNER"
Come and shine my love!
|49 cents!! BLAM!|
So home they go with their new momma...
When we got home I spray painted the candlestick holder HEIRLOOM WHITE....gave one coat and then flipped it over to get under the curves......
Our "goggie's" were bothered by my spray can!!
While she dried I got to the plate with some sandpaper...I have already admitted my LACK of patience due to excitement, so I will be painting SANS primer.
|This was like 3 bucks.. ..I will be using it many more times. Typically I wouldn't buy something for a project at that price.|
....give her vigorous sanding to give the paint something to stick to.
|little helper is a good "vigorous" sander :)|
I decided to paint her with red chalkboard paint inspired by this, and there are MANY, MANY, MORE like it all over the net.
|This is from the Burlap and Blue store on ETSY. I love her blog and there are so many things she inspires me to do!|
It's like 13 dollars at the Home Depot...However, this was given to me from MI MAMA, for a kitchen door...Not sure about that yet.
Here's little helper painting, she couldn't WAIT!!
Ok, what you don't see is that I left if out and it rained :(
But I waited, waited, and waited, coated, coated and coated and when she was dry I finally was ready to give her a 9th life.
HER DESTINY!!!!!!!!! A cookie, appetizer, cupcake tray! YAY!!!! HOORAY!!!
The residue allows the erasable surface. You are able to wipe it with a damp cloth after 7 days.
I OOBER-excited to show you,
plated cookies on it!!!
Isn't it sooo cute?!?!?!? I am gonna make a ton of these and they will be perfect for a party table...
Its so inexpensive!! They sell these at the stores for like $15-$50
This one we'll say was a GRAND TOTAL OF $3..GOOD DEAL!!
