Love the chalkboard and the cake plate! I never would've thought to turn the pie plate upside down like that.
Thanks for joining TST!

I love your projects!
And the pots are so cute - they remind me of my mom's kitchen in the 80's (in a good way!) - so fun!

Love the chalkboard! What an amazing transformation. Ditto on the cake stand. I am sure that NO ONE would know otherwise unless you told them, that it wasn't a 20.00 plus purchase. Fantastic job! I am so inspired.
Thanks for stopping by my blog...
