Plate Makeover


Did you know you can spray paint plates? Well you can!! :) I spent forever this weekend looking for new plates for the plate rack above my dining room table, and came up with nothing (well, nothing that costed less than $8 a pop!) However, Tai Pan had some funky looking ones, and for .99 cents, I figured it was worth a shot to give them a makeover!
they started out like this... not bad, but from some angles they turned blue...?

i gave them a little sanding to take off a bit of the gloss

picked up some of my FAVORITE spray paint


this is honestly the ONLY brand of spray paint i will ever use. EVER.

gave them a good 2-3 coats

distressed the edges

set 'em up... and decided they were too plain :(

but that can always be fixed :) (vinyl is always the cure isnt it) ;)

I LOVE how the green turned out! They add so much color to my house! :)

Yay for spray paint!
