So Whatcha Think?

Anyone that loves to dabble in primitive decorating is all in the details. We are always on the search for that perfect fabric, the right shade of red, or that last decorative touch we can add to shelves and wall gatherings. Well, that brings me to today's post.
I had this ugly gold switch plate cover in my dining room.......I am not real sure what the idea was, but I knew it had to go. It just stood out like a sore thumb, so yesterday I did up this set and I love them! I tried getting pictures of them hung up, but they were boring so I lined them up so you could see the set together.
My pictures have them a little washed out, as they are more of a dark tan then beige. They were first done in black, then the topcoat of tan, and distressed, and antiqued. I think they turned out great!
This second set I just did for the heck of it. I am not sure if they will go in my kitchen or not, but I wanted to try out the red over black to see what I thought. Again they are more a deep red, but my camera was just not going to capture it today.
If anyone has suggestions as to what kind of plates they would like to see, let me know. I have done several in the past that are painted with designs, and though I love them, sometimes we just want something with a little less pattern.
I am going to be busy today trying to finish up a few more projects to share with you later on......and it is a gorgeous day here and the weeds are calling my name after all the rain the past couple days, so hope everyone has a delightful day, and till next time.........Blessings to All
