Happy Monday to all. Hope everyone had a fabulous “Super-Bowl” weekend? Hope YOUR team won!!! I didn’t watch any of it, as I was painting a large stripe around the ceiling and wall of my master bedroom. The stripe had been done previously, but I thought it was way too skinny and didn’t make a bold enough statement for me….Finished now, and the room also got a major “SPRING CLEANING” while I was at it, since the furniture was all moved around.
I’m going to show you two very quick and easy DIY projects…one involves a gold wooden owl, and the other is a plate cake-stand.
First, the owl….
I bought this wooden owl in “Winner’s” for $5.00, but wasn’t totally thrilled with the gold finish. I bought it anyway, knowing that a can of spray paint would change it to what I was looking for.
The second, is a plate stand that I made….
I bought a small white plate in a thrift shop for $1.50 with the idea of making a plate stand already in mind. I also required some form of base. Searched the thrift stores again, for something I could use. I found this stainless steel “Sudae” dish. It was PERFECT!!!!I needed something that had a larger diameter to sit on the table so that it wouldn’t topple over.
I’d like to make one or two more of these plate stands, but have my bases different heights so that when arranged on a buffet table or counter, the different heights would give interest to the food…..
Do you have any DIY projects that you’d like to attempt? What’s the worst that could happen?
Have a great week…..Until next time, Judy
