I have an area in the basement where I do my little projects, so I hurried down there and painted it with Waverly Chalk paint in white. Next, I printed off a beautiful graphic that Ann from On Sutton Place had on her site.
I painted, let it dry overnight, then cut the graphic as close to the design as I could, and using Mod Podge, I attached it to the top of the stand. I left that overnight then using a spray bottle of water, I misted it and then rubbed off as much of the paper as I could safely remove without tearing the graphic. Once I was satisfied with the look, I put on another coat of Mod Podge to protect the graphic. Thanks for the graphic, Ann!! I'm really loving this piece.
Cute, don't you think?? I think the white paint makes the stand look like glass.
The edge is scalloped with a leaf design.
I found this very old salt shaker at GW as well. Wish there had been a pair.
The butter bell also came from GW. They had three of these, and I got all of them. :)
Love this sweet cake stand. Of course, I wouldn't put food directly on the stand.
Remember, no matter how badly something may look, with a little makeover, it can be pretty, too!
