Altered Glass Cake Plate
For so long I have wanted a black glass plate stand. This was my remedy.
Using spray paint (of course), specifically Krylon Fusion black spray paint in a satin finish, my daughter and I set out to "get me a black cake stand." Krylon Fusion says it is suitable for glass, but others may be also.
Before and During:
I sprayed the underneath of the stand. I wanted to be able to wash off the top and thought that it might not be good to mix food and spray paint. ick! The effect is really neat, because the color is a layer under the glass. (see top photo)
I wanted to do something interesting to the dome to tie it into the stand, but didn't want to spray the whole thing. My daughter had the idea to just tape off the glass ball on top. We then sprayed it too.
After decorated for halloween:
I will use the stand by itself more often than not, but the dome adds a great extra for when we have goodies to put inside. I already can't wait to use this for Christmas.
Speaking of goodies...Chloe made her whole wheat bread yesterday evening. This morning it was yummy slathered with everyone's choice of peach butter or honey. Or in Chloe's case, banana and Sunbutter. I prefer not to think of that choice. Ick!
