A Trash to Treasure Redo!


This past Sunday my husband and I had a chance to do a little thrift shopping at GW. Although there wasn't a whole lot to choose from I did find this awesome sized plate. The moment I saw it I knew exactly what I wanted to paint on it. Sorry I didn't get a before picture, but believe me it was ugly and in much need of some tender loving care. So home it came and after some sanding, sealing and more sanding it was ready for paint. I have loved this design of Deb Richey's since I first saw it, and I thought it was the perfect thing for this plate!
I added a real vintage button to her dress just to dress it up some, and I just love it!

I have a few more trash to treasure projects in the works, so I hope to be able to share them soon.....hope everyone is having a terrific Thursday........till next time......
Big Blessings to All!

  3. I love it Jody! You did a great job! When you buy something real ugly at a thrift store do you feel like you need to tell the cashier you'll be painting over it? I do because I don't want her to think I have bad taste LOL.
