Hello everyone! I was very quiet lately, because we were doing some home renovation and I was very busy with moving, cleaning, dusting,...name it! But meanwhile I found some time to decorate an empty living room wall with some plates, saucers and little dishes. You can even see a small vintage frame in there!
Some of these dishes are gifts from my mom, sister and my lovely friend Christel♥
In order to hang the plates without plate hangers (I just don't like them!) I used framing wire and
hot glue gun. To make them even stronger I used several layers of duct tape.
The back of plates is very ugly now, but who cares as long as they don't fall down and break! :o)
In the end I scanned the bottom of each piece and made a template. This way I could see where exactly each plate is going to be and where I should hammer a nail. This step takes some time and is boring, but it's totally worth it.
Last weekend I found a few smooth, round and flat pebbles by the beach.
I painted my signature birdie on one of them. I'll show more of them soon.
* I've used:
- Acrylic colors
- Micron 005 pen
- Clear nail polish for sealing
Have a wonderful Friday and weekend friends xo
