I hope you had a great weekend. I had a busy weekend finishing up some projects that I am glad to be sharing with you this week. First up is a set of DIY painted spreaders. My mother refuses to accept gifts for Mother’s day. Instead, she prefers that we gift experiences. She loves tea parties and so do I. I love the gloves, the big hats, and most of all the cute tea sandwiches and spreads.
This Mother’s day, I plan to host a Tea party and give her this DIY white and gold painted spreader set as her favor/Mother’s day gift. It’s my way of sneaking in a Mother’s day gift.
I found this independence day themed spreader set while thrifting last week. The set was priced for $3.00 and it wasn’t too bad of a price. You can personalized any set you find at the thrift store, but I especially liked the shape of the hats on the spreader.
Each spreader was sprayed with white paint. Unfortunately, I ran out of paint mid way through my second coat and switched to white chalk paint. Either type of paint works good, but the spray paint was simply more convenient at the time. I probably should have checked the can before I started. 🙁
Gold accents were given using a gold leaf paint marker. I adore this marker and I’m going to need to buy more soon.
**Note, I washed the spreaders and found that some of the gold accents I made with the marker came off, so I encourage you to seal the paint with a spray finishing sealer before you glue on the brad pieces.**
I couldn’t wait for mother’s day and used them along with my Lilly Pulitzer inspired plates for a quick snack. I love fig jelly with cheddar cheese on a Ritz cracker. Yum Yum.
Thanks for stopping by my Casa!
