Hi all my lovely blogger friends! I am joining Susan @ Between Naps on the Porch for Met. Monday. Last week I showed you my guest room and the progress we have made.
Off to the right is a big empty wall that has been giving me fits! It's hard to see here but it is as blank as can be and I am looking for ideas to fill it. The ideas need to be frugal too with Christmas just around the corner. I would like bead board but that will probably have to wait until next summer. In the meantime, I decided to paint an old shelf I had and use that as a starting point.
The before: an old pine shelf very popular in the 90's.
A couple coats of red spray paint and it's looking better already. I would like to fill it with white ironstone for a pretty contrast. The other thing I wanted to change was the big heart. So last night when hubby and I were shopping at Home Depot we came up with an idea. Why not buy a decorative tile to cover the heart and add some architectual interest.
We found this, it's a pretty big tile, about 5 inches across and has a neat scrolly design. I think the cost was about $2.
We are using Goop glue and letting it dry overnight . Instant, presto, brand new shelf with an updated look! Next week I'll show you how it looks mounted on the wall. Now on to my give-away!
The winner will receive...
This cute little Christmas angel.
A gingerbread oven mitt perfect for keeping your little fingers from getting burned.
Here's another one I made. Just leave me a comment and I will announce the winner next Sunday ! Have a great week everyone and if you have any frugal decorating ideas for my blank wall please let me know. Cindy
