CHIPPENDALE MAKEOVER!!! MUST SEE!!!

Several weeks ago I had a blog post about several Thrifty Finds that included some wonderful and unique silver plated serving pieces. You may remember this picture from that post:


See the platter that is holding the sunglasses? It is a HEAVY piece, but has some terrible scratches and areas where the plating has been completely worn away. I still love the detailing of the edges and it is elevated by three decorative feet.



The engraving on the back says,"W & S Blackinton, Chippendale, 1451".


Kammy, over at Small Home In the Country introduced me to this FABULOUS color of spray paint by Krylon a few months ago: Oil Rubbed Bronze


I decided that is just what this platter due. Please notice how I recycle old plastic coated tablecloths for painting projects. I use them over and over before tossing them out.



I added 2 coats of the paint to both sides and now have a lovely "new" platter!



Thanks for taking the time to read about my latest "makeover"...I'm linking to Metamorphosis Monday, graciously hosted by Susan over at Between Naps on the Porch.

I really like that color of spray paint. Your tray turned out very well. You'll have to show us where you end up using it in your home.

Hey Suzanne !
I am loving that "new" tray - you did a wonderful job ! Thanks for mentioning me in your post today - you are a sweetie !
I am loving that tablecloth idea - right now I am using an old table - which really needs a re-make - but, I was thinking what will I use then - now I know - great tip !

I always gasp at the thought of spraying silver, but it looks really sharp. Thanks for sharing!

Beautiful! I did this a few weeks ago, with a large silver tray and was amazed at how much the intricate designs were enhanced by the dark spray paint. Your looks wonderful! ~Rhonda :)
