Easy Little Plaque Redo

I got this little plaque at a yard sale for 25 cents. I see similar ones all the time and usually get them if they're really cheap 'cause they are so easy to redo. I spray painted it black and glued on some scrapbook paper, ribbon, and a rooster which was part of a pack I got at Michaels. I already had all that stuff so I didn't have to go out and buy anything which is always a good thing. I hung it on a kitchen cabinet to the right of my sink over a plate that was already there. I just can't get away from the rooster stuff. I still love it and I want to stick with the things that make me happy. Enjoy the rest of your day!

What a great idea, Angie! And, I love it! It looks so good where you put it and the colors you chose go really well in your kitchen. Something else to look for when I go to Goodwill this weekend. {I'll actually be dropping some things off, too!}.

Very cute! What do you use to hang things from the cabinets? I have some on either side of my sink, but I've always been afraid of damaging the finish. Mine aren't painted - they're stained. (Although I wish they were painted!)

That is just adorable, Angie! I love roosters too. Don't have many yet. I say go with whatever makes you happy. Because you'll enjoy looking at it every time you pass by it.

Oh how cute that looks, and you are right- I see those plaques all of the time, but I'm never smart enough to buy them and do something like this. But I will be buying them in the future! Thanks for a great idea! laurie

SO very awesome! I'm going to keep my eyes out for those plaques/tiles... it'll be the perfect way to "sneak" in some toile without making The Hubs all nutty. :)
