I just finished installing some decorative plates above the bed in my master bedroom.
I’ve been looking for something understated and pretty for this spot for a long time.
I love the way they add a nice but subtle touch of color.
Want to see how I did it?
First, I collected a bunch of mismatched plates from Goodwill. I was looking for a variety of sizes, shapes and textures.
Then, using Americana Gloss Enamel paint, I painted them all out in a pale blue color. I applied two thin coats. On the glass plates I painted on the back side because the pattern was more pronounced on the back.
Goodbye ugly palm tree!
When the plates were all done and dry, they go into a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes to cure the paint. Until I read Madigan Made’s post on DIY cream ware, I had no idea that there was such a thing as bake on paint!
Do you see a face here? I’m going to add a couple more plates because now that I can see the face, the face is all I can see. It reminds me of a clown, and I think clowns are scary.
What do you have hanging above your bed? Nothing scary I hope!
