I took a little break from working on my kitchen makeover to do some crafting!! After cleaning out all my cabinets, there were a few things that I decided I didn't need anymore and I took the box to Goodwill. Well, of course, while there I had to stop in and see if there were any goodies in my price range!!!
They had their Christmas stuff 50% off which I didn't realize until I was ready to check out. I happened to see some Christmas dishes that had both a dinner and salad plate. I have seen those tiered holders and decided I wanted one for Christmas! Since they were 50% off, they cost me a whole $1.50 for the two.
I had already purchased the candle holder at Dollar Tree for $1. I did buy some red paint because I thought it would look better red than just the glass.
I started out with Gorilla glue. I should have read closer on the other blogs that made these because they probably told me to use the glue gun!! I got it out and it worked a whole lot better!! However, you have to be fast as I wanted to move it a little more but it was done!!
I just love it with the smaller plate on top! Here it is in all it's glory sitting on my newly painted counter tops and you can see a sneak peek at my faux copper tin backsplash that came out great!!! The picture is of me and Mr. Creative in 1988 when we were dating. Awwwwww...young love!
I am hoping to post my kitchen next week. I still have to make the curtains to give it a finished look. There are more things I want to do to it but since we are having Thanksgiving here on Sunday, I think I am done until next week!! I have to clean this house!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!! Since we are celebrating on Sunday, we had filet mignons and crab legs for our dinner yesterday!! Yum, yum!!
