hot pot

This is a quick little makeover project that I whipped up one day, a few months back but forgot to show you.

 I found this trivet at an op shop and thought it was cute, but it needed something to bring it from the 70's into 2011- so first I sanded it lightly - you can see I had started sanding in the photo.

I painted the apple with white paint and sanded it back, I painted the leaves with chalk board paint, and this is the beauty of this little project, 

 it means I can write on the leaves what the dish is and then people know what is in it - great for parties!

I would use this little piece just about everyday for putting hot dishes on the table for serving, although I don't write what's in it for everyday use, just for special occasions.

  1. Great idea Denne! Love how you can write the name of your meal on it too.

  2. Such a great idea! I'll be keeping my eye out for one of these!

  3. Ok, it's so cute now I wanna make one out of my leftover scrap wood! :-)


Thanks for taking the time to comment, I always appreciate your kind words.
