A lazy susan is great for painting dishware, spin and go

A mix of pink and red makes a pretty watermelon color

Put the paint in a small well next to each other and let it blend on your brush.  Use a flat square brush and make short overlapping strokes all around the edge

    Did you paint the small trays also? Where did the small watermelon oblong bowls come from?
    Great projects.

    • hi Judy, No I didn’t paint the trays, I got them several years ago at Old Time Pottery and the bowls I’ve had forever, sorry! I have seen a bunch of watermelon stuff at Christmas Tree Shoppe, so try there if you have near you, or just paint your own! >

    What fun summer chargers Jenna! I’ve been eyeing the personal watermelons in the grocery store. I think we might need one on the menu for Memorial Day 🙂

    These are just too, too cute! Glad you shared a tutorial, maybe I can create a set of the plates! Can’t wait to see the tablescape… “the peek” is looking good! Hope you have a great Memorial Day Weekend! 🙂 ~Rhonda

  12. Hi Jenna, You make it look so easy but I know from experience that somehow my creations in paint don’t look quite the same! I will enjoy yours for now! Can’t wait to see the tablescape. Linda
