An Easy Way to Revamp Your Dishes

An Easy Way to Revamp Your Dishes

If you are like me, your first full set of dishes was nothing to write home about and likely from IKEA or Target. They were cheap, functional, and well, boring. My dishes now are no more exciting...just a slightly more expensive, yet still plain set from Crate and Barrel. I'm about ready to go crazy with a paint pen to up their exciting factor.

Jennifer from A Merry Mishap recently did just that using these Porcelaine 150 Markers. She created a simple, yet modern design using nothing more than repetitive circles and it looks awesome! Once done, she just baked the dishes for 35 minutes at 300 degrees to make the design permanent.

This sounds so easy and yields such fantastic results. However, I think I'd test this on my IKEA dishes first as I don't completely trust my drawing capabilities.
