GOOD WEATHER FOR SPRAY PAINTING

So, the First day of March brought 70 degree weather, which meant (to me anyway), I could finally do some of the spray painting projects I had been dreaming about all winter.

The first one I wanted to do was inspired by (yet again) something I had seen on Pinterest. Go here to see my Inspiration... and here's my version.
It started out like this... your typical brass candlestick and a simple white plate - both found at my local Goodwill.
After a couple of coats of Gloss Red paint and some E6000 glue, I had my own "Soap" stand.
Now I just need to get some pretty containers for my soaps. I've seen a couple of "how to's" for turning mason jars into soap dispensers, so I'm pretty sure there's another project coming in the near future.

The second thing I painted was a new Cake Plate Stand. I found this silver candlestick at Goodwill for $2, and the plate was from someone leaving it at our house after a party and never coming back to claim it. I joined them using E6000 glue.
I was a little worried about the dark trim around the rim of the plate, but after a few coats of primer, it was no problem.
And Voila...
I had the green paint already, so this little project only cost me the two bucks.


And then the best part...

I found the glass Dome at Goodwill for $5. I so can't wait to do a little baking now that I have something pretty to show it off on.
