Here is another of my thrift store finds. When I found it I thought the shape was wonderful but the colors would not work at all in my house. Too much of a Mediterranean look for my tastes.
So, as I always say if you like the shape the colors can always be changed.
This piece was meant to hang vertically, I wanted it to hang horizontally.
I envisioned a white trellis with pastel plates above my kitchen window as a type of valance.
The finish has a lot of texture. I just painted right over the entire piece with white chalk paint.
After the second coat of white I was happy with the new look.
Next I needed to paint the individual plates. I needed to custom mix the lavender and the yellow paint to match my decor.
Then I painted the aqua and pink with paints I already had.
As you can see in the previous photo I began to add a little bling to the plate centers using more hot glue.
Painted, dry and ready to hang.
I used to steel S hooks to hang the piece from the curtain rod over the window. This piece now reminds me of a garden trellis. Love it!
The colors are a perfect match to my kitchen. This set of canisters was the inspiration for the colors scheme I used in the kitchen along with black and white check.
