Goodbye Goodwill, Hello Gorgeous!

About a month ago or so I was strolling through some blogs and came across a project that I wanted to do sooo bad. I do not remember which blog it was but this Fab lady found an old wooden cheese/cracker plate and cloche and a candlestick. She transformed them into...Well something gorgeous! Fast forward to this week... I took a trip to the Goodwill the other day and guess what I found?





That's right, a wooden cheese/cracker plate, cloche, and a wooden candlestick. SCORE. I paid a total of $3.80 for all three. So I bet you can guess what I did next? That's right, I cut the top of the candlestick off, sanded it then glued it to the cheese/cracker plate with Gorilla glue epoxy. Since it has been so nice outside the last 3 days I have taken advantage and spray painted them black and almost everything else I can get my hands on. Take a look.

Don't you just love it? I do!


I have more projects to show you that I have done this week but I just do not have the time to get pics done and post them today. Have a wonderful day! :O)

  7. I love it! I was just wondering what you did to the white flowery part of the cheese plate, isn't it ceramic... did you paint it too... take it out?
