My mother-in-law is currently moving to a new house (closer to us) and had a few decor items she wasn’t going to use at the new house. If you follow my blog regularly, you know I tend to gather unwanted items from others and then add my own spin to them. In this case I got a really nice wall decor piece of vines that hold plates with magnolias on them. I don’t have the before picture put here is the after:
The only thing I did was paint the leaves and the little coil springs green. Not only did it add a pop of color to the black metal, but it made the piece look a little more vibrant than before. I have this in my dining room and it really completes the space.
Another item I got from my mother-in-law, was two wall mounted candle holders that can hold 8 candles each in glass votives. For these, I decided to use glass clings that you can paint to add a little color to the votives. The ones I used are from Martha Stewart that I had gotten at Micheal’s a couple of years ago. Here is an example of one close up (with paint):
These clings work best with glass paint, but I used acrylic paint anyway (I am such a rebel)! Here are the clings on Amazon if you wanted to check them out:
I painted mine after I put them on the glass. There is more definition with the black outline clings as opposed to silver outline (top holder). Here is the finished project on my butterfly wall.
I can’t wait to use the clings on other projects down the road.
