Upcycled Dishes

This summer, after being frustrated with how messy my dresser was and how impossible it was to find matching earrings, I searched the internet for a solution. I found some cute solutions using old dishes and was inspired.

After a quick trip to St. Vincent's Thrift Store, I had all the supplies I needed: 2 plates small bowl shot glass short candle holder

I used gorilla glue that I already had at home to put everything together. A hot glue gun would have given it a cleaner look, but I haven't made that purchase yet, so I used what I had on hand. It worked pretty well, I just had to keep wiping excess glue off the plates as the glue expanded.

My dresser looks so much better now! And I can actually find the jewelry I'm looking for without getting tangled in bracelets and necklaces!
