Spray that Platter, Glue that Burlap

Kimba over at A Soft Place to Land is hosting a DIY Day and I'm here working on a post at almost midnight. Crazy!
DIY Day @ ASPTL


And of course we always try to join Leigh over at Tales from Bloggeritaville for Thrifty Thursdays.



So here goes...

Some of you may remember this thrifted platter.




Such a change.

010

and

This bottle that I've had for years


got some new clothes and a crown sketched on with a sharpie

040
(check out the makeover on the lamp base here)

And my paperback pumpkin to a little stand for my thrift store partridge.

045

Oh what a little spray paint, burlap and crafting time can do for you.

Amy {The Red Chair Blog} said...

What great projects! Love the sketch on the burlap, and I've never seen that paperback pumpkin before but love how it looks as a pedestal. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks also for stopping by my blog to say hello!

:) Amy

Carrie said...

It's great how you transformed the platter and bottle into up-to-date looking decor items!

Kirby3131 said...

You really transformed those objects. The bottle with the burlap and the wire and of course the crown - love the crown.

What I was mostly oohing and ahhhing over was the way you photographed the images. Great composition!

Sarah said...

I love them all! I actually goggled when I saw the platter makeover. Well done! :)

Dawn said...

I love what you did with that little bottle!!!

Cass @ That Old House said...

Hi Christina -- what a great blog! Love your makeovers -- you and your sister have good "eyes" for diamonds in the rough. (And I can't believe she got flowers for a buck at Aldi. Ours doesn't even have flowers.)

And yes -- those basketweave plates are a buck apiece at Dollar Tree. There are mugs and bowls as well, but I'm just getting some of the plates -- they are the most elegant dishes I've found so far there.

From a distance, you can't tell them from the HUGELY expensive English ones! Works for me.
Cass
PS Great shots - you are good with the camera!

Angie said...

Cute projects! I bought some burlap yesterday and made a window treatment. Love that stuff!

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

LOVE the burlap with the crown...great sketch!!! :) Thanks for stopping by my blog. :)

Brenda said...

You did great with that Sharpie! I'm not very good with those things. You have a lot of creativity brewing at your house!

Flower Patch Farmgirl said...

Have A Great Day!
