a beautiful pop of aqua…

hope your weekend was great!  I’ve been working on my dining room projects and I wanted to add a pop of color.  when I moved my cubbies to my craft room, it left a bare spot, which I filled with this vignette.

 blue-cabinet-137

first, I took a grain sack-$10 and attached it to my gothic frame.

then, the garage sale cabinet was painted with martha stewarts “enamelware” paint.  and a clock knob-hobby lobby- was added.

    here’s the before…                          and after.

I love the patina of my 3 ironstone platters, ceramic clock face and the vintage silverware.

my cloche is sitting on an old birdcage base, and an iron stone plate, that is topped with one on my cd clock faces.
