Wall Plates

I love plates, I always seem to find neat ones here and there. Garage sales, Flea Markets, and my personal favorite - Japanese markets.  Storing all these plates is another story! This weekend I decided to embark on a project I've been meaning to do forever, pick out my favorites and hang them up. Plate hangers are AWESOME and inexpensive. Why let these beauties waste away unnoticed in the cabinet, when they make such great wall art?! Here are some gorgeous examples of what you can do with your collection, some wall space, and a $2 plate hanger.....

I think they look great, and added bonus - You can still easily take them down and use them.  If you haven't considered plating your walls before, let these pictures be your inspiration and let the hunt for cute plates begin!  Have a great day, it seems the rains have stopped for us here in California.... for now...

Two Tier Table

Now that drop leaf baby is finished, it's time to move on to this two tiered end table I've been glancing at for a while now. I'm not sure what to do, just yet, but I have a lot of ideas floating around. I'm thinking something along the lines of cobalt blue... I might stripe it with the wood, I might two tone it, I might do a fabric inlay, a pattern stencil.....I really can't decide. Do you have any ideas?

Paper Scrap Light

I love this light! Really simple in construction, I saw it on design sponge and fell in love. The original post is here on Design Sponge, one of my favorite blogs. I can't wait to start making these. I love paper and I love lights, I've always toyed around with both - this is perfect! Here's a few more shots:

Keep an eye out for these, I can't wait to start!

Brick & Turquoise Drop Leaf - Part 2

Ok, so I finished the table! Here's the original post if you missed it.  So I finished up with a good distressing session to let the red really come out, then I did a glaze of deep black over the entire thing afterwards. I'm pretty happy with how it came out! Fun little beachy table, with just the right amount of red coming through. Let's just get to the pictures, huh?!

Originally I wanted a lot more red to come through, but I just went with the flow, and ultimately I think it's just the right amount.  Don't forget, this was the before:
This table is available in the shop.
