Painted Leaf Dish

Remember that little leaf dish I bought at Goodwill?  My plan was to paint the whole thing silver, and I started by painting just the bottom side of it.  I liked how it looked, and I knew if I painted the top, I wouldn't be able to see the stem and veins in the leaf, the stuff that really made it look like a leaf, so I just left it that way.  It now sits next to my bathroom sink, looking all spiffy and holding little shiny things at the end of the day.


  1. I love the look of this! Great decision to not paint it all the way. I'm hoping to head to some thrift stores later this week to find a few accessories to fix up for my master bedroom. I can't get my rings off (too much pregnancy swelling left to get rid of) so won't need a dish for rings, but I'm thinking maybe just a little spot for earrings or other special things.

  2. I like that you just painted the bottom! I wish I had left mine like that too... Maybe I will find another leaf dish and have a re-do :)
