Plates & Mod Podge Project

I want to share a great find I purchased yesterday at Marshall’s. Look at this Johnson Bros. bread plate I found for $1.99, isn’t it lovely?? All they had were bread plates so I picked up two of them. I really want a couple of platters & plates to go with these two to put on my dining room wall.

I have never worked on a decoupage project before, and I have been really eager to try it out. I have seen so many people creating such cute projects with Mod Podge, I thought today would be a great day to create something for myself.

What really makes this project so great is that I have used all recycled materials. I had a couple of metal containers that were not so attractive, some tissue paper that was in a gift, and some leftover paint from a previous project.

I only took a picture of one one the containers because I got so excited about the project and started painting the other container without taking a before picture!!

Here is the final result. I plan on putting these in my office/sewing room to hold misc. items.

By the way, I am not sure if you all are on to me or not. I am using all of these cute borders to hide my unprofessional photos!! I sure need a lot of practice taking pictures.

Have a great week.

Hi Nicole! Your containers came out super-cute, great job! And I love the bread plates. I collect transferware in red, blue and just recently in black. It's timeless and so decorative hung up. Good luck finding more pieces!

Yes, I found a few pieces at the same place. I was really lucky to find a bunch more really cheap at a Wedgewood outlet near me. Your project is soooo cute. You could post it on Susan's Met Mon
It's not too late for today, even! have so many good ideas! More people need to discover your blog. Have a great day...Debbie
