A Whiter Shade....

I had bought 2 cheese keepers
awhile ago
and I also have had these bases for awhile

lightly sanded everything

I didn't like the original look of these
I'm also not sure what they were

I sprayed them with 
Heirloom White

and glued the bases
to the tops
and viola!!

I've had this table for awhile
it was in really bad shape
the leather had cigarette burns

 and initially
 I painted in black 
but hated it!
So it got a couple of coats
of Heirloom White too!

I got these plates
quite a while ago

(yes I am finally 
getting to all "those" projects
I spray painted it 
again with the Heirloom White
(yes I do use other colors)

Using the Damask Decor
Cricut cartridge 
I cut this out
of vinyl

using transfer paper I centered it
and rubbed it into place

It took longer
to choose a design!

Most of these items
 will be in my upcoming yard sale

  1. Jo, I like your new cloche bases! Heirloom white is always a safe color- sometimes, it's best to stay neutral. You have a cricut? I bet you can create some neat things with that. :-)

  2. Very pretty! You can't go wrong with Heirloom White!! Stopping by from Met Monday!

  3. Great projects...a little white spray paint makes everything look great, doesn't it?

  4. Cute! I really like the way the cheese keeper and candle holders turned out. I would never have thought of that. sorry Jo but I am having trouble reading the dark type on your green background. Just thought I'd let you know.
