New Shelf!

Well I think the new shelf is to my liking. It took a while to find the right stuff to put there (Especially since a lot of it wasn't finished yet) It was just hard to picture what should go there! But I finally decided to go with this:

#1- Was the frame I got on clearance from Winners $3

I painted it white and added a silhouette of a flower.

#2- The frame I bought the other day thrifting .$.99

I painted it black and added a tree silhouette. Love!

#3- White plastic dollarstore plate with a stamp in the middle

I think it turned out great! I love the texture from the paint

#4 The foam balls I made yesterday in a jar!

And #5 I'm sure you see the window I painted and fell in love with here

Well, I decided to take the backing off, and I am much happier with final outcome. It didn't look right, so I just ripped it off! ahhaha

I already had the other frame from a long time ago, it was already painted so I added a bird silhouette, and I painted the letter A black, and added it to the shelf.

What do you think?! I think I love it.


  1. Whoa! That shelf looks great. I love the plate with that stamp. You are so creative!
    About the screen door, I haven't done one myself, but spray paint works SO good on metal. I have had the best outcomes with metal over wood. So I say GO FOR IT!! Make sure and do a primer that is tinted darker and then your spray paint will go on a lot better. (and take a heck of a lot less time!)

  2. Love it! Especially the plate, that's such a great idea!

  3. Thanks guys!
    (I havent got to the door yet..but I will! :))

  4. Hi Ashley, I love the idea with the plate. Do you have any tips for getting a good result?
