Spring Plates


I've been on the look out for decorative plates to replace the winter snowflakes ones hanging in the kitchen.  When I saw these at TJ Maxx, I knew they were the ones, but when I got them home and in place they just didn't look right.

The plate racks were white and the plates were white and on a light wall color it just didn't mesh very well. So what did I do?  

Take a look at the before and after



Before with Winter Plate



After with Spring Plate







I love the new color!


I have two of these hanging on the wall and one sitting on the counter.


Here is the winter before and spring after of that one.

This is a great way to add a little Spring to your kitchen.

  10. Oh yes, I think the red one is better. I always love red in the kitchen. I have that same exact counter stand but in black, and I have a red bird plate sitting on it. It is actually on my coffee post that I just did. We are thinking alike, my friend. Your bird plate is so sweet.
