Cheese Cloche

3:29:00 PM

Thrift store to fabulous!

The thrift store is loaded with cheese dishes...

I'm on a mission to make the world a better place today...

Thanks to The Graphics Fairy for the great image to transfer...

I used Mod Podge to stick the image onto the painted surface, 
let it dry, then wet and rubbed off the paper... 

When it was dry I waxed the surface with clear wax.

I tied a key and key hole to the lid with jute...

Love the results and I gave it to my friend as a gift!

Today I successfully saved another cheese dish from the landfill!
