Several weeks ago I had a blog post about several Thrifty Finds that included some wonderful and unique silver plated serving pieces. You may remember this picture from that post:
See the platter that is holding the sunglasses? It is a HEAVY piece, but has some terrible scratches and areas where the plating has been completely worn away. I still love the detailing of the edges and it is elevated by three decorative feet.
The engraving on the back says,"W & S Blackinton, Chippendale, 1451".
Kammy, over at Small Home In the Country introduced me to this FABULOUS color of spray paint by Krylon a few months ago: Oil Rubbed Bronze
I decided that is just what this platter due. Please notice how I recycle old plastic coated tablecloths for painting projects. I use them over and over before tossing them out.
I added 2 coats of the paint to both sides and now have a lovely "new" platter!
Thanks for taking the time to read about my latest "makeover"...I'm linking to Metamorphosis Monday, graciously hosted by Susan over at Between Naps on the Porch.
