Not a weight loss ad

Have you ever seen one of those weight loss ads where the  lighting is bad the person has bad posture and is frowning in the BEFORE pic?  And then in the AFTER pic they are smiling, &sucking in their belly?

I’m about to show you the equivalent of those pictures with my craft project. 

Last week I told you how I was itching to repurpose something. So on the same trip I found this tiered dish for $1. The price is right. 

The BEFORE (bad lighting & glare)

Not so impressive right?  I slapped a little paint on this baby and viola.

The AFTER (with sweets to make it look even better)

A cute little dish for a party. I can see some cute little cupcakes sitting on this for a tea party.

So tell me what you think…honestly. I can handle it. Does the paint really make that much difference? Or does it still look like the same $1 thrift store find?

Great find - I love that paint!!! Maybe you could add some rub ons or something for added texture - but honestly it looks fab!!!

I think the paint definitely made it cuter and more updated. I liked it before too though! LOL
