DIY: Jewelry Dish

Tuesday, May 29, 2012

I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day! While we don't celebrate it in Canada, I used the day as a small break from my summer class and job hunting. I spent most of the day on Pinterest where I came across this pin which led me to this tutorial. Believe me when I say that I fell in love. This monogram dish tutorial is perfect for cute and functional storage. I had to make it! Here is my spin on it.

I used Acrylic Paint in "African Violet" since purple is my favourite colour!

I started off painting just the middle, but when I was finished the plate looked unfinished to me. I decided to then paint the whole plate purple!

End result. 

I then free handed the silver border around the edge and my monogram. It isn't perfect - but seeing as I will be keeping jewelry on it, I figured it didn't need to be!

Overall I spent $4 (2 dollars for the plate and 2 dollars on paint)! Time wise the entire project from start to finish took me about an hour (most of the time was spent making sure the paint was completely dry before continuing)!! I think it turned out great and I can't wait to put my jewelry on it! 

UPDATE: I decided to add a coat of Modge Podge to the finished product to seal the paint!

Do you use pinterest? Have you tried any DIY projects featured on there?
