More checks, of course, what else?

I ran into Goodwill to drop off a few things probably some things I bought there and found this pathetic enamel baking dish. I saw it a few weeks ago and loved the shape of it and knew what I could do with it, but I walked away. Today when it "called me over" I decided to buy it and paint it. I taped off the edge trim:
and painted it with white enamel spray paint and I am sure you know where I am going with this:
and I began to do some more "doodling":
I won't use this to cook in but it will be a cute accent piece!
And look at the cute placemats I found at The Christmas Tree Shop - only $1.00 ea:

  1. That turned out very cute! I would never have thought of spray painting an enamel dish. I'm going to remember that. I always love your "doodling" projects. I like how the checks on the placemats go with your decor.
    Have a great week.

  5. That looks so great, Patti! MacKenzie-Childs look at a Goodwill price! I was attempting to do a harlequin pattern on a topiary pot I wanted to freshen up, but I'm such a shaky person, I'm afraid to continue. I wish I could "doodle" like you!

  6. I love how you add your check touch to things I would never even think of. You would love the floor in my tea room - black and white checks. =)

  8. Brilliant! It reminds me of MacKenzie Childs. And I can't afford her hand painted ceramics so this is just brilliant! You are very talented!~Ames

  11. Patti, you know I'm smiling at this project. You really have vision. It never would have occurred to me to paint something like this. I sure do learn a lot visiting my creative blogging friends. ~ Sarah

  12. I was just about to copy the URL & send this link to Sarah, above when I saw that she had already been here! Why does that not surprise me??
    This was a brilliant idea & I could KICK myself for passing up several enamel containers just like this on Monday. I'll have to go back!!
