I have a 2003-esque trivet that looks similar to this--
yeah, i forgot to take a "before" pic... but you get the idea, right?
Hit it up with some white spray paint
i lightly sponged on a thin coat...
then added a little more dark silver and worked it in with a sponge...
brings out the definition of the stone beautifully.
and here it is in our bedroom shelf...which is still a work in progress.
Alright, back to reorganizing our kitchen pantry. I have the New-Year-organization-bug, so I better run with it while it lasts. :)
Have a good one!
