During my last DI Trip I picked up this adorable glass topper
I’ve had my eye on this really cute glass topper that sits on a ceramic dish at Rod Works (local home decor store). The price tag on their’s was $30. I knew I could do better; so I went on a search to make my own version.
metal star plate
Here is how I put them all together
I just stacked them all on top of eachother and put some decorative balls under the glass toper.
Total Cost: $8.40
glass topper: $0.50
candle holder: $3.95
decorative balls: already had
Im pretty pleased with the how it turned out! The best part is that it was a whopping $21.60 cheaper than buying the one from Rod works :)
Remember my lovely brown frame I got at the DI? Here is the breakdown: I bought some chalk board spray paint from Home Depot. The frame had the glass piece and the picture. The picture is actually just a piece of cardboard with a photo imprinted on it. I wiped the cardboard down really well and primed it. I let that dry and then generously applied my chalk board paint. While it was drying I primed and painted my frame. To finish up the frame I added a little glaze to pop out the detail of its border. I put the cardboard piece back in and fastened the back and VOILA look at her now! You can use this for whatever you want; dinner menu, love notes, messages, the possibilites are endless!
Total Cost: $5.30
Frame from DI: $1.50
Spray Paint: $3.80
I already had the primer, glaze, and the stand
Look at what I picked up from Roberts on black friday….
Im in LOVE!
?Im putting at least one of these on top of my cabinets in my kitchen! Someday I’ll do a post on my almost finished cabinet tops!
I found this beauty at a yard sale for five bucks and I just couldn’t resist! I’m a bit intimidated by her at the moment but I can see some serious potential. I have several ideas running through my head and cant wait to start putting them all together. I hope to have her completely finished within the next week!
I have a good friend that LOVES to go bargain shopping with me! The other day we went to D.I (our local thrift store) and we were completely overwhelmed with bargains EVERYWHERE! I refrained from buying it all but now I wished I would have! Here are a few of my awesome finds….
Did I mention that I LOVE twine? You can add it to anything to add that final touch! The green bottle has got to be my all time FAVE; I love it! That frame is quite the character but I have plans in store for that beautiful lady. I’ll keep you updated on the frame!
