Our sink is most often a complete mess. Between the regular sponge, the bottle washer, magic soap, regular soap, lotion and dish soap, it is a wonder you can see my countertop over there! I wanted a way to group most of those items together without them just ending up in a pile on the counter. I was clicking around Pinterest and saw someone using a cake plate for this purpose and the light bulb came on!
Genius idea right? So, I got to work hunting down supplies to make this happen. Candlestick – check! Plate – check! Glue – check! My plate was white so I picked up some colorful spray paint from Home Depot and gave it a good spray. I also used some copper acrylic paint I had hanging around the house to make a very rough looking (on purpose!) border around the edges.
Of course, after all that work, I saw an almost identical plate in Target the next day. I picked it up in case something happens to my “precious” plate.
I added some glue to the candlestick
Then, I placed my plate on top. I flipped it upside down and set a pot on it for awhile just to make sure the two pieces adhered well.
Once it was dry, I loaded it up with my kitchen supplies next to the sink.
Pretty simple project but it makes my sink seem so much more organized.
Have you repurposed anything like a cake plate recently?
