Top 10 Projects of 2008 part II

By The Style Sisters - Wednesday, January 07, 2009

This isn't really a project but it was kind of fun to use what I already had to make it seem different. I used my black and white dishes mixed with other dishes and napkins to create new table settings.

Black and white dishes with red napkins and a white daisy placed on napkin all on white table cloth.Black and white dishes sitting a top of bright yellow dinner plate on top of brown place mat with vegetable napkin totally changes the look.

Classic Black and white dishes with white napkin on black placemat

Black and white dishes with lime green salad plate placed on black placemat for yet another fun look. It is like dressing yourself using different jewlery...I love it!
A spring wreath made from silk flowers left over from my daughters wedding.
Footed bowls made from baking casserole dishes and a smaller dip dish for the bottom. I simply epoxyed them in place and Voila! A fun new serving dish.

Since I do not own a hutch I bought a black shelf from Ikea and outfitted it to look like a hutch by using black and white dishes and baskets.

  1. Look at you and your beautiful plates, I love all you looks.... and great Hutch Idea too... :-)


  2. Oh, I never met an expoxy project I didn't like! :-) I did something similar with vintage plates and glass candle holders. Voila: Fancy cake stands! And your faux hutch is fabulous...I actually love that the deeper shelves give you better display options.

  3. Thanks for coming by! I love to meet sisters in the faith and practically attached at the hip like my sisters and I are:-)

    You cake plates are beautiful! I loved the tablescapes.... and bedroom re-dos, wreathe from your daughters wedding etc. We just had two weddings in December! But did we save the flowers...nope.
    In fact as I read down and I am so inspired!!!! WOW, your blog is beautiful and so creative. May I add you to my blog list of many other sisters? The plan was to have my four living sisters blog with me on this blog.... but they haven't caught the vision or ...the addictive disease yet:-)!!! Someday, until then I enjoy all the friends in the blogging neighborhood..

  4. Looks great! I invite you to drop by my place and see my before and after's.

  5. Nice table settings!

  6. Love your table setting ideas, very inspiring to me as I need to start working on all of mine. How smart you were to save the wreath from daughter's wedding. Wish I had saved more things...

  7. Those place settings are beautiful and the shelf used as a hutch is darling :)


  8. Love the black shelf from IKEA - what a fun place that is! Your tablescapes are stunning!


  9. I never tire of black and white! Well done! Love the radish on the napkin.
