Casserole Holder to Table Plateau.

Its makeover Monday once more.  I wanted to share a quick project that took a phone call, a can of spray paint, some sandpaper and some E6000 glue.
This sweet white table plateau with its amazing lion head and paw legs, started life, most likely, as a casserole holder.  I found it at our last flea.o.logy sale, at the end of the day for just $6.  The legs are cast iron.

It was painted the color in which you see it above.  I loved the color, but knew that it would not match most people's decor and thus might be passed over.  (Above you see it with the mirror I ordered that came in the wrong size, so I set it on top of the frame and used it for my daughters' spa night last week.)

After I spray painted it white, I used some sandpaper to removed some paint.  I like the blue peeking through, and its not enough to clash with any decor color scheme.

Once the glass was recut (the phone call) and glued into place, (With E6000 glue) it was ready to go to the antique show with me this past weekend.  It really turned out to be so charming, but did not sell.  I don't think it will take long though as it is the perfect platform for any centerpiece.  Thanks for coming along on our Make Over Monday, mini-adventure.
