$1 platter makeover...

I went to the thrift store yesterday and spent a whopping $5 and came out with this....

Yeah it doesn't look like much now, but boy it will soon.

I was wanting to find a few things that I could transform into a small cake plate for Jansen's birthday cake. He will have two cupcake towers filled with cupcakes for the guests and a Lego Man head cake for himself. That's where the black duck plate (oh wait, maybe that is a swan) and two candle holders come in. Lego man needs a really cute display....coming soon!!!!

Anyway, I was rummaging through a rubbermaid box at the thrift store and came across that vinyl "Family" sign. At $1, I had to have it and practically ran to the register.
I have this platter....
It's had about 22 different lives, visiting all different locations in my home, had various things written in dry erase marker on it....but today, my gets a transformation.
YEAH!!!!!! It's perfectly perfect!!! WOOHOO for dollar vinyl. And the best part is the color....PEWTER. Isn't that a cool word to say....pewter?!
