Do-It-Yourself: Old Dishes And Cups Make Great Craft Projects

Posted: Updated:

From Networx's Sayward Rebhal:

I got rid of all my old dishes on the day after I got back from my honeymoon. We’d gotten this lovely modern set – our first real grown up dishes! And they actually matched! It was pretty exciting.

That was four years ago, and nowadays when I open my cupboard, it no longer looks so shiny and tidy. How is it that dishes manage to multiply so efficiently? Other than a few Christmas mugs, I really don’t know where most of these came from. And yet, there they are taking up space, mismatching one another.

I’m ready to clear out again, and I’ve been thinking. Other than my usual charity shop donation, is there something fun to do with old dishes?

As it turns out, there’s a lot!

Got any other ideas? Leave a comment!
