This is another one of those projects on my list, like the last post, and with a little drilling help from my man, I was able to cross this project off the list today. I sure am happy with the way this second-hand treasure turned out too!
At the beginning of the summer I went to the funnest place on earth! No not Disneyland - well this might be considered a kind of Disneyland for Farm-Girlie-Grown-Ups- but Farm Chicks! Wowee talk about super cute junk! Holy Cannoli, did I load up! It was so fun being with my gal pals and finding one-of-a-kind treasure. This silver butter dish was one of those wonders I couldn't pass up.

2.) drill a hole in the bottom of the dish part and then
3.) re-assemble the footing of the candlestick to the underside of the dish and the main portion, to the inside of the dish.

I took Silver Chrome spray paint (yes for a car- it was all we had in the shed), black and brown craft acrylic, a ratty old brush, and went to work.
