Before & After: Thrifted Plates

Chez Larsson

Benita Larsson has done it again. Her simple yet brilliant projects never cease to amaze the craft-loving community. This time, her gorgeous update to a set of clear, glass plates she picked up at a thrift store is the perfect inspiration for decking out your holiday party on a budget.

Some basic craft paint and a few minutes (plus drying time) is all she needed to transform these mundane dishes into beautiful dessert plates.

If only all repurposing projects could be so beautifully quick and painless. The best part? The paint never touches the food and is also dishwasher safe, so the plates are more than just eye candy. I'll definitely be scouting my local thrift haunts for something similar next time I go shopping.
