Yes, I love roosters. I have them in my kitchen. What I don't like are bright colored roosters. Mine are all in pastels.
My rooster love started when I was a toddler. My mom had them in her kitchen. One of my favorites that she had was a rooster lamp. But like most roosters it was dark wrought iron and bright colors. I have it hanging above my sink. I did repaint it in pastel colors to match my kitchen and decoupaged the lampshade in florals.
So, when I found this plaque at the thrift store I knew it would work perfectly in my kitchen. Not the color but the shape.
Don't be afraid to buy something if you like it, especially if the ceramic doesn't have a high gloss finish, it is easy to repaint to match your decor.
This plaque measures 7" square. It's cute but just not the right colors.
I started by painting the entire piece white.
I decided I was going to use aqua, pink, white and Parisian gray.
For the background I dry brushed aqua and gray. The tail is aqua and blue, the comb I painted pink, then dry brushed a little bit of the gray on the white feathers. For the basket at the bottom I used gray dry brushed a little heavier on the high points.
To give it a little bling I added pieces of gold foil then when everything was dry I gave just the rooster a coat of Mod Podge for contrast to the matte finish background.
And here is my little shabby chic rooster ready to hang in the kitchen.
