After my recent crafting adventure, I had the itch to do more plate- and bowl-painting. So I thought I’d paint up a few pieces to keep my perfumes organized.
I picked up a variety of white porcelain appetizer-sized plates and small dip bowls at Pier 1 (the bowls were $1-$2 each! can’t beat that!). I chose to use silver paint leftover from my last project.
And the look of a gilded the edge on a small scalloped bowl…
Here are a few “glamour shots” of the finished products:
They add a nice touch of “bling” to my dresser. We’re kind of at an impasse about how to decorate our bedroom, so in the meantime, I’ll just accessorize with a few little things!
Love this! I have been working with mixing a paint that would be safe to use on kitchen stuff…pie stands, fruit bowls, etc. Polka dots would be great for those!
Thank you! My only complaint about this brand of paint (and a few others I’ve seen) is that it’s not safe for surfaces that you plan to eat off of. If you come across something that is, I’d love to know!
will do! Right now I am contemplating coating in resin or something really tough to survive constant wear and tear.
Hmm. This is very timely for me. I am having a polka-dot fetish at the moment… and it hadn’t actually occurred to me to make my own!
How does the paint stand up to the glass bottoms of the bottles?
So far, so good! But I’ve only had the bottles on the plate for a few days. The instructions for the paint said it could cure two ways. The first is to let it sit for 21 days. I was too anxious to wait this long; I waited about 14 days. The second option was to cure the items in a 325-degree oven. I was planning to do this, but then second-guessed if the items were really oven save, plus, the bowl wouldn’t sit flush on the oven rack – it kept wobbling around. I’ll let you know if I notice any paint chipping off!
This is so cute and really simple!! Great DIY!!
Thank you! 🙂
Great minds think alike! Love the dot plate! Too cute! <3
Aww, thank you! 🙂
