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
