Remember last April when Ben and I went up to Lancaster for the weekend? While there we popped into a couple very odd thrift stores...if you need a refresher - click here....anyway, in the first thrift store I picked up this cake plate for $3. My plan was to find a candle stick or base to attach, paint it all to match and make into a cake stand. That may still happen...but for now, I did a quick paint job to make the plate more interesting - since I never found the right base! Here is the before....

Pretty, right? In a Grandma kind of way. I did this a couple months ago, and can't remember all my thinking, but I took blue paint to it...paint that works on porcelain.

 After 2-3 coats, I put it in the oven for a half hour and there you have it. Bright and blue!


  1. This is fantastic! Where can I put in my order for one?

  2. That's actually very cool (especially that it is now kind of translucent). Mom will take hers in red, thanks.
