DIY Bone White Turkey Platter

Look, but don't touch! This Turkey is just for the lookin' not for eating on. Back in California, my mom had been working next to a thrift store that frequently had awesome stuff. One of the things she found was a fiesta inspired turkey platter for....wait for it.... 5 bucks and I think it had a discount too. WIN! While some might have liked the platter in all its colorful glory, I felt it would match my kitchen better in a classic white.

Usually, platters and things made for food have a marking on the back that say "oven safe" dishwasher safe" etc. Or it would say say "not for food". This platter didn't say either. It was completely blank. So I was never comfortable serving food on it and gave myself the "OK" to spray away. Ha! That rhymed.

The final product...

Here is Mr. Color ME Badd before:

Here we go...Rainbow Turkey Glory

I used Krylon H2O which I love! Water based, easy to clean if you make a mistake and holds on for dear life. Ace, on the other hand, is a POCG. (Peace of crap garbage) Their Metallics and Primers are HORRIBLE. Metallics rub off on EVERYTHING and primers stick like humans on walls. The white wasn't bad, but was so thin I needed 3+ coats. Keep away from Ace brand sprays. Just sayin' 

Final product turned out great.

 I love color, when used appropriately. That previous turkey just wasn't working for my kitchen. Classic white is timeless and no matter what trends-in or trends-out (I just made those up ;o) bone white will also hold a special place in the decorating world. Hope you enjoyed. By the way, don't forget contest ends Monday November 19 midnight PST. Winner will be announced Tuesday morning.
