The Nester Said to Paint Something....  

Posted by: Julie

Day 5 of 31 Days to a Better Dressed Nest is to paint something.

Um...yeah...I've been doing quite a bit of that lately haven't I? ;-)

Kitchen Cabinet Knobs HERE

Old Christmas tins HERE

I've even painted my kitchen after years of wall paper HERE

Today I'm going to show you another little paint project I've done for the kitchen.

I'll admit it....
I'm a thief!
Yep....a true criminal!

I TOTALLY stole this idea from The Happy Homebody
and from Thrifty Decor Chick


Here is the plate I started with:



A little black spray paint and half of a faux apple and we've got this...



After the hung these on my wall, I felt like it needed something.
The apples just got lost....it just looked like a red blob on a plate on the wall.

I took some metallic bronze paint and brushed over the stem so it would stand out a bit.
Then I added a leaf to each apple to make it more "apple" like and less like a blob LOL!

I love it so much more now!
Funny how those little details make all the difference :~)


I've made 2 of these to add as wall art in my kitchen!

Totally Frugal Awesomeness!!

Love the idea and it's okay that it wasn't yours originally! :-) It looks great!

cool idea! Would be neat to show the inside of an apple on another plate. Guess that doesn't work with a faux apple! But, I think it would neat to see the inside of an apple cut in half with the seeds showing. :) I love apples. Cracker Barrel has some neat apple stuff right now -- maybe when it goes on the clearance table you could pick up some deals . . . or wait for someone else to buy it, get tired of it, and donate it to Goodwill!!! ;)

I think I may have to try that!!! Love the idea. You could even put pumpkins on it for fall.

Wow that really looks fabulous - really really terrific!

Wow that looks great! I love the addition of that ring around it. Very cool!

Very cute and so much better than what was previously on the plate!!

all of my best ideas belong to someone else!

Thanks for joining my linky party, I hope to see you there again!

We all do it...it's really okay. You did a great job on yours...looks awesome!

Blessings,
