DIY Gold Leaf Catchall

When Caleb and I were Christmas shopping last month, a gold leaf platter from Martha Stewart's collection at Macy's caught my eye.  I thought it was so pretty and would be perfect as a catchall on my bedside table, but I didn't really think it was worth $76.  A few weeks later, I found this little glass leaf dish at a thrift store.


I didn't know what kind of paint I could use on glass, so I just bought some Martha Stewart multi surface paint at Michael's.  A paint for every surface - genius, right?!  Leave it to Martha!  Anyway I painted my little dish while Caleb was out of town last week, and I'm really happy with how it turned out!  And it only cost me $2.50 :)

  6. Love this dish! I think I need to get a dish for in our bathroom for when I take my jewelry off. I have a dish in the bedroom, but it seems to be overflowing. Maybe I should actually start using my jewelry box... haha

  17. It looks so good! It makes me wonder how many other things we can transform with paint?!? And I noticed the book, are you reading it yet? What do you think? I didn't read for a while but picked it up again last weekend and have about a chapter left.
