Great news! The granite is IN. I'm about to pee my pants with excitement, it looks exactly like I thought it would and I'm just doing the happy dance. They are cleaning up now and the plumber will be here tomorrow to install the faucet. It will take me a few days to clean up, since we have Mother's Day festivities this weekend, so expect some pics next week!
Also, thanks to all of you who came by for the Garden Party, it was a lot of fun and I hope all the blooms inspired and got you more excited to dig in the dirt.
In the meantime....
About 8 years ago, I found this plate at a yardsale. It was milkglass and I knew it was collectible, vintage, blah-blah-blah. Did I care? Nope. I decided to decoupage it, since I was in the decoupage stage at that time and thought it would be quite pretty with a bunny on it. So I painted it black, used some wallpaper I had on hand and pasted this cute bunny in the center. And I really loved it for a long time. It hung on the wall in my bedrooms. But, now that I’m collecting white dishes, I decided I might try to get that paint off and use it as it should have been originally. Milkglass.
Out came the Goof Off and with a little scraping with a razor blade and rubbing with the Goof Off….Eddie Ross would be horrified at me, especially since I see this same large plate in his Etsy store! :)
And hanging in the dining room on the wall. Even though I’m still not an official milkglass collector, I like this plate. The cut-out edges are so pretty and it looks right at home with my other white dishes.
So, this is just a word of caution…be careful what you paint. You just might change your mind later!
