DISHES HERE DISHES THERE DISHES HUNG EVERYWHERE! DISHES ADD A PUNCH COLOR AND INTEREST TO ANY ROOM!
Hi there, hope you are enjoying your summer! So happy you took the time out of your busy day! If you are anything like me you love decorative dishes. I can't help to buy them when I see them on my thrifting trails. My favorite are vintage ones. I found this lovely piece on Saturday and it had all the punches of color I was looking for.
The plate has the deep dark purple and the green that I am using. So I needed some more dishes in the green color but no luck finding any so .......
I have a whole stack of these not so pretty saucers so I gave them a coat of the green paint to match the new dish and decided to stencil some numbers on them to give them some rhyme and reason.
I did a little" brush sanding" then added some stenciled numbers.
I added some hot glue with a paperclip to hang them on the wall, this truly works for hanging dishes. Be sure to wipe the area with some alcohol so that the dish takes the hot glue well.
I love the look of hung dishes! I just don't limit the dish hanging to the kitchen......
These are hung in the dining room.
These wonderful Honig Apple dishes have holes in them near the leaves ,so a little cording is all I needed.
These dishes hang in the large red, white and blue suite.
These hang in the kitchen.
These depression glass plates are held in a wire basket that hangs from the kitchen shutter. So scan your cabinets for some pretty plates and share them by hanging them up for all to see. Pretty dishes got a bad rap up until now no more shelf sitting for pretty dishes around here. Thank you so much for stopping by!
Welcome brrrrrrr! its cold here in S. W. Florida and everywhere for that matter hope you are as warm as can be. This winter I wanted to go with a winters farm theme. I crafted a sign my imaginary WinterCrest Farm and all the farm items to go with it . I painted things I had been saving when I conjured up this idea months ago.
So my kids thought I was crazy saving the Mrs. Butterworths plastic bottles but I gave them a coat of black chalk paint and added the price seemed fitting because the farm sign says pure maple syrup.
White lights and a few baron branches to give the winter glow
This little ceramic piggy bank also got a lick of paint
I added my vintage wooden breadbox filled with raffia and some blue and white dishware
A simple rag garland
So this mantle display did not cost me any money just stuff I was saving and some paint and an old piece of wood !
Hi there ! welcome to my kitchen where you can find any gadget you may need and also usually something tasty cooking. Don't mind me though my clothes are paint stained my hands well Ill hide those you sure don't want to see them after cutting wood ,sanding painting etc. I should be arrested for having hands like this lol. So I have crafted, bought and repurposed everything here. A trip to Target was fun I scanned all the clearance in the home dept . I bought 3 lovely green dishes , a wonderful candle and 2 very large kitchen towels all for about 14 $ . All which is used in the kitchen. Lets take a peek....Love to offer you a tea and a fresh bagel...……..
This luscious smelling candle was a Target find
I decided to go for a chunky lace curtain until Fall isn't that crazy we go from less is more to Chunky!
An old wooden box holds some vintage apple dishes and other vintage odds n ends
These 3 crazy shaped dishes which are now my favorites were also a Target find
Hi there welcome! Hope everyone is enjoying the day. Lets talk Shiplap for a bit, I was thinking that Joanna Gaines of Fixer Upper was maybe just a tiny bit over doing it with her shiplap but let me tell you she has introduced a wonderful way to explode your home with vintage style and beauty her excitement is fully understood now.....thank you Joanna for introducing me anyway to such a smashing wall finish.
So this is something I wanted to try for a bit , I have a huge wall in the kitchen that I cant really remedy meaning everything I do there I really am not happy with until now that is........people all you need is a paintbrush measuring tool lots of masking tape, dark paint and light paint and you can achieve the "shiplap look". Lets take a look
ok so this is just a flat black painted wall and you do need a dark base color or if you prefer use a light base color and dark on top but the most important trick to all this is CONTRAST For this Faux shiplap application …
