DIY Milk Glass

Hello my friends!  It has been way too long.  I hope you are having a fantastic summer!

I would like to say that I have tons to post and my house is magically decorated.  It's not.  And I am being craft-lazy.  I am trying to live in the moment and enjoy these fun summer days with Little Man.  Plus I am getting caught up on our family blog in a BIG way.

Although the progress on decorating has been slow (I am so indecisive!), I LOVE the addition of this "milk glass" to my kitchen cupboards.  Ever since I saw this post on Elle Apparel, I knew that this would be the perfect addition to my kitchen.

I love and adore milk glass.  I love the clean lines and the white.  Even though I really don't have any of my own!  So I decided to make my own.

(And let's just ignore the pineapple on top of the fridge.  And the odd gap between my flour and sugar canisters.  Deal?  Deal.)

 

I raided Good Will one afternoon, and came home with a bunch of stuff!  My plan was to paint all of it in several coats of Glossy White spray paint.
Funny story:  Little Man walked in to Good Will with me and asked to leave immediately!  Strange.  He normally loves to get out and go shopping. I asked him why, and he said, "Because it's ugly!"

 

I also used some things I already had on hand--like this vase.  Mr. oopsey always sends me the same flowers in the same exact vases.  Not that I'm complaining, but I have lots of these vases!  So this one wouldn't be missed.

Lovely right?! Then it was just a matter of how to arrange all of the pieces across the cabinets!  I had fun making my arrangements across the cupboards.

Mr. oopsey helped me use scrap wood to prop everything up so it could be seen from eye level.  He even created some wood pieces with grooves to fit the plates perfectly.  You can't see the wood at all from below.

I love how this turned out!  And it was so easy!

What do you think?
