DIY Candlestick and China Cake Plate…

I love walking through antique malls and thrift shops…this activity really gets my creative juices flowing :) On a recent visit to our Booth space, Jennifer and I did a bit of shopping in the store. I spotted an rustic painted candlestick marked for $2 – and this booth had a 50% off sale!! Then it struck me that I could create a cake plate.

The next day I went to Goodwill and purchased a china plate for 50 cents! It is a Noritake, mint condition plate in the pattern of “Ontario”. When I got home I referenced Replacements in Greensboro, NC and learned that this plate fetches $27.99 per dinner plate. Yay me!
