The silver platter wall


If you’ve read any of my blog, you’ll know I love all things silver and gray. Of course my love doesn’t just stop at picture frames and accessories, if I could paint my home silver I would, so it probably will come as no surprise that I figured out a way to cover one wall in a whole lot of shiny silvery goodness.

I suppose I started collecting silver platters and trays when I started making little bathroom tablescapes. I bought my first one at Goodwill and used to hold soaps and clear canisters for cotton balls and things.

Book page art tutorial


I like to make art for my apartment. Now that’s not to say I won’t buy art if I see something that tickles my fancy but I think there is a certain amount of pride that comes along with knowing you created something to hang on your walls.
