How has everyone been doing with their Thrift Shopping? My shopping hasn’t been to eventful itself. Thrift Stores are open around me, and I’m dying to rummage through them really. The weather has been good, you can feel spring in the air, and I’m excited to get out there. Unfortunately, due to us being in the process of house hunting, and moving I am trying to preserve myself right now. It’s killing me because it is that time of year to do these things with thrifting, rummaging, and hunting. However, less packing, and less issues with worries of breakage with things will make the trip of moving just a little less stressful for me. Until then I might work on small transferable projects,, and sharing some things I have done in the past. I apologize, and ask you to bear with me 1 more time. Soon I shall have a better area, and more room to work with...if everything goes as planned. Crossing fingers. 

All the pictures you see above are different Cloche Glass Dome Cover Cheese Trays I had refurbished, and restyled. These were all done with wooden bases, and were all done over time with different pieces found. Most of them I kept simple with priming, and painting the wooden bases. I painted 1 black, 1 blue, 1 pink, and 1 white. 

At the very top of these dome covered cheese tray pictures you will see the black pedestal dome stand I did. This one was fun, and a learning experience for me too. A bit challenging, but still fun! I used the original wooden base that you find with these cheese trays, and attached it to a wooden candle holder. After the glue dried completely I applied a gray primer, and then painted it all black. Once that dried completely I applied a piece of sheet music that I fitted to the circular center tray of this piece which had been slightly stained, and then mod podged. I used some of the scrap music sheet I had cut to apply around the middle of the wooden pedestal stand. Around the neck/top part of the middle pedestal I added a white satiny ribbon that matched with the paper. This added just a touch more character to this piece.

Now, on the white cheese tray I used mod podge, and again cut some sheet music to fit the center. I slightly stained the cut sheet with some coffee, and tea. I then slightly burnt the outer edges of the sheet music before applying it to the center of the base. I had left the blue one plain, and with the pink one I had included one of my vintage doilies I had.

With all of these cloche dome covered cheese trays I had listed them with my Etsy Shoppe over time too. I enjoyed sharing pictures of different ways to consider using these too. 

While thrifting it may seem like we collect some of the craziest things, or that we accumulate things with no definite goals in mind. Showing these things to you is how it can all come together for me, and can for you too. 

Thanks so much for visiting with LilacsNDreams everyone! Always glad to see you stopping by. Till the next time take care, and be safe! Toodles . . . . . .
