I love all milk glass, but blue French opaline is my favorite. The color is so dreamy and looks beautiful in just about every space.
I’ve collected a few pieces here and there (this one and this one and even this little one on my desk are still favorites), but opaline is so dang expensive! I drool over collections like these below from Eddie Ross and the home of the owner of Juicy Couture.
I decided to try my hand at recreating the look with a little spray paint for my wardrobe vanity’s jewelry drawer.
I went to Goodwill and picked up an assortment of clear glass dishes for about 50 cents each. I tried to get a good mix of shapes, sizes and patterns in the glass. Some of these are butter dishes, there are a lot of saucers and little bowls and even a few ashtrays.
The ashtrays actually work the best for separating stud earrings and the little bowls with rims are perfect for hanging drop earrings with hooks.
I love seeing the “opaline” dishes peeking out from the vanity drawer. The color is so pretty!
