silverware wall decor...

silverware picture...
{i cannot remember where i seen it first, so if you know... PLEASE tell me so i can give the proper credit to them!}

ANYWAYS, redoing kitchen, or at least i think i am, by bits and pieces, oh what a mess. i need some new wall decor... cheap wall decor is even better. i seen this picture around and knew it would be cheap, easy, and beautiful to redo.

so i started out with:
of course you remember my thriftin' goodies.

on THIS project i used:
1. picture frame $1 at salvation army
2. 1 knife, 1 fork, 1 spoon .75 at salvation army
3. a piece of lace from a curtain .25 at salvation army
4. spray paint {had on hand}
5. glue gun & sticks {had on hand}
TOTAL = $2.00

so to start i took the frame apart, kept the cardboard and i'll save the glass for another project then i spray painted it with:
{i'm a big fan of black, can you tell?}

then it looked like this:

then i took the lace and wrapped it around the cardboard and hot glued it down. then i put the cardboard back in the frame
AND it looked like THIS:
{i looove this lace, don't be surprised if you see it in another post, cause i got LOTS left!}

then i glued the knife, fork, and spoon to the front,
THAT looked like:
{yep you guessed, i already love it!}

then i had a dilemma... i couldn't decide how to hang it up, with ribbon or lace. so after much deliberation between my co-worker and i {yes, at work again, but only half of it, and we have been REALLY slow} we decided on lace. so then i glue it to the back of the frame like this:

and hung it up. after that it looked like this:

for some reason i didn't like the way the lace hung so i played with it a little.

much better!!!
i took it home at lunch and hung it on my half way painted kitchen walls.
{pretend it's all painted and you see no red, k?}


so what is the verdict??
was it worth $2??
what's your favorite piece of wall decor in your kitchen??















 
hooRah it's almost friday!!!


i'll be linking to these parties here.
