Pinned It and Did It

It's Pinned It and Did It time again and I did a DIY project this time.
Last week I had a party and made these fabulous gold dot placemats for a festive look at my table.
I have been all about adding touches of gold lately and gold polka dots are my biggest weakness.
As soon as I saw this on Pinterest, I knew I had to do it.
I knew plain white placemats would be hard
 to find this time of year,
 so when I came across these "cutting" boards at the dollar store
 I immediately thought to use them instead.
  Bonus, they came 2 in a package. 
I already had the gold paint and an unused pencil,
 so my 8 placemats only cost me $4 
and less than 30 minutes of my time. 
 I am definitely using these at Thanksgiving as well.
Here is a look at my completed table. 
 This project was so simple,
 but really added impact to the table.

PS...I bought the placemates in October, so I didn't violate No Shop November!

What an easy, yet fun addition and so clever to use the cutting boards.
