Little Changes

I've been looking for a tiered server or plates to make one for a while now and something always keeps me from remembering when I'm in the store...even though my phone list is updated. Must be my distractive personality - yes, I'm creating that term especially for me and I bet it applies to a lot of folks out there (you know who you are).

Look at what I found at my almost-local (45 miles away) Re-Store:

Love the autumn leaves, but not loving the brass handle/stem, plus the finish was worn. Thankfully, it all came apart!

I think this was Oneida Premier

Since this was metal, I figured automotive primer would work well:

It looks better already

But I thought this might look even better:

Yep - Oil Rubbed Bronze with those little metallic flecks. Love!

One more pic:

Can't have any of those cookies - I ate them all. No, not in one day! Jeez - it took three days - I'm watching my waistline expand.

This was something that someone drilled and put together - anyone know if they still sell those handle/stem thingees still? I still want to make my own...

Here's a sneak peek into some projects I'm working on:

More on these coming soon...until then Happy Monday!


  1. So much better without the bright brass color. It looks even better decorated with all those cookies! Great makeover!

  2. What a score! I love the leaves and the oil rubbed bronze is perfect! I don't know if they sell the hardware kits (let me know if you find them), but here's my "industrial version that you can make from parts from your local hardware store:

  3. That is such a lovely show off piece!
    Cuddos on a job well done. Again. Can't wait to see the next in line.

  4. A little love is sometimes all it takes! It looks SO much better...

  5. Thanks for stopping by my blog - I'm your newest follower.

  6. Thanks for visiting and leaving your kind comments. I'm your newest follower. I love a junk queen!

  7. I forgot to tell you how much I liked your server. Isn't it amazing what a little paint will do?

  8. Love it!!! My ReStore isn't as close as I'd like. (But maybe that's a good thing... could be dangerous!)

  9. Great find and tweak. I love the Re-store and oil rubbed bronze.


Thanks for taking the time to leave your thoughts! I appreciate each and every one of you!
