Woman's Day!

It seems like I'm getting onset memory loss because of the lead time for magazine articles!  I guess it happens to the best of us.  Well, this month I was happy to find a project I shared MONTHS ago with Woman's Day Magazine and now I'm sharing it with all of you.
Now just in case you don't know what's going on, I'm going to include the original project.


Beauty lace plates
Probably one of my favorite projects to make since I'm always finding terrific glass dishes that need sprucing up a bit.  A little lace, a little spray paint and you've got something amazing.  

You'll need:
Krylon Fusion Spray Paint (It's the best for this project!)
Newspaper for your workspace
Lace in different patterns
Spray Adhesive (love the stuff!)
Krylon Clear Coat
Sticky felt to protect the back if it's just decorative.
Here's How:
Step 1 
Step 1.  Cut a piece of lace larger than your plate so that it covers all the edges of the plate.
  Step 2
Step 2.  Spray your lace with the Spray Adhesive and stick it to the back of the glass plate so that all of the lace is sticking to the plate.

Step 3
Step 3.  Gently remove the lace after the paint is dry.

  Step 4
Step 4.  Spray the entire back of the plate with another color of spray paint.  Choose contrasting colors for the most impact.

Step 5
Step 5. Spray several coats of clear coat on the BACK of the plate to protect the spray paint.  Wait 10 minutes in between each coat.
Step. 6  Add some sticky felt on the back if it's just for decoration.
REMEMBER TOMORROW is the official launch of 


  1. This magazine has been sitting on my mother's dining table for a few days now and I just flipped through it this morning to find this project and thought, "Well they just stole this right out of Mark Montano's Big Ass Book of Crafts!" I was glad to see you recognized at the bottom, and now I have a new blog to follow!

  2. Hi, i m in love with your creations!! sooooper dooooper nice!!!

  3. I love this project. I hate to admit it but I've yet to make this project--yet's it dog eared in your first book that I own. I must put it on the Must make in 2011 list!

  4. I'm trying to do this but I'm having a horrible time finding lace or stencils that work properly. I even went to the site suggested in the book but had not luck. HELP! please?

  5. Lovely...always wondered how these were made
