Pyrex Upcycle

I bought this vintage 3 QT oval gratin dish a couple of years ago but it simply languished in an upper cupboard, never once having been used as a baking vessel.  A couple of months ago I was organizing the kitchen and knew that I either had to part with the dish or find a way to use it.  I set it on the coffee table to get it out of the way while I continued my work and voila! the dish revealed its true purpose to me:

I purchased river rocks and clear glass tealight holders at the craft store and within five minutes I had a lovely centerpiece.  It's on the mantel for now, but I'll move it to the dining room table once we finish our remodel.


  1. It looks super stylish. Good thinking!

  2. That's a great idea! I might have to borrow it and make one of my own! :)
