Greetings Friends! As promised, today I am sharing my latest project using recent
Friday's Finds. You know how I love me some Vintage dishes, so what could be better than a shutter repurposed as a plate rack? Best of all, everything including the paint was thrifted!
This unopened bottle of paint was .25 at a yard sale a few months ago and sure came in handy! I decided to keep the rustic finish on one side in case I get a whim for change in the future, then gave the shutter two coats and allowed it to dry overnight.
After hanging the shutter, I waited several days before adding any plates to be sure it was in the "right" place, as I often do with new projects. Anytime I walk by, I pause to step back and survey with fresh eyes. I usually decide pretty quickly if it has found a home. Anybody else do that?
The platter was a recent find and the other plates from my previously thrifted collection. I pick up wire plate hangers from yard sales whenever I see them, so I had them on hand as well. Voila! My lovely plates have found their home sweet home! What's your latest DIY or repurpose?
MY HEARTFELT THANKS TO THE FOLLOWING FOR FEATURING THIS POST:
