DIY Cake Plate

We love walking through antique malls and thrift shops…this activity really gets our creative juices flowing :) On a recent visit to one, Jennifer and I spotted a rustic painted candlestick marked for $2 – and this booth had a 50% off sale!! Then it struck me that we could create a cake plate.

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

It was literally a one-minute project.

    Great idea for thrift finds! I’m always seeing “one plate” that I love, but resist adding it to the collection. No more! I see a whole shelf of different size pedestal stands in my future. Thanks for the tip ladies :-) Bwg ~~~
