This is another one of my projects from Christmas.  I made it for my Sister-in Law.  I picked the platter up at an estate sale and my husband said "What are you going to do with that?"  I said, "I don't know yet, but it will be beautiful!"

Confident in my abilities to make beautiful stuff from ugly things, I set about my task.

There is a floral patter engraved on the front, and that's what drew me to it, along with the ruffled edges.  I used steel wool and then washed it to be sure the paint would stick.

I painted the front and back and used Cricut to cut the vinyl lettering.  I also attached a hanger to the back, but I really like it on a stand as she has it displayed.
