DIY update of old treasure

Posted by Christina // 6 Replies

I mentioned yesterday that we went treasure hunting last weekend.  Tomorrow I am going to share all of our fun finds but I had to show you my favorite quick update.

When I saw this gem of a glass-platter-thingy…seriously what are these called…I knew it had to come home with me.  I love picking up pieces like this because the options are endless. my-estate-sale-treasure She’s a looker right.  With her sweet old country quilt scene.  I considered gold leafing the plate and staining the wood, but decided on a more fun approach. how-i-remade-the-pretty-platter I put a quick coat of Pantone’s color of the year around the base and then cut out a cool piece of graphic scrapbook paper.  I intended to glue it down but then decided that I would love it more if I could change it up with just a paper cutout.  Just look at her makeover. before-and-after-of-apocathary-makeover Have you done any quick updates?
Will you ever get sick of Emerald?
What is that thing called seriously?

    Love that color! I bet the worst part of the project was waiting for the paint to dry! haha.

    YHL called it a cheese plate but I think there’s an actual name for it. What that is… I have no idea.
