Decorating for Dummies ... 101

My grandmother's plates .. on Kennedy's wall in her bedroom

Another view

This is a follow up to a post I did several weeks ago. After surfing some new blogs, I was inspired to put my grandmother's china on my daughter's wall. It's up there GOOD -- no worries -- it's not coming down. Yes, Nester, I used the heel of my daughter's red sparkly dress shoe to bang in the nails! WORKED like a charm! Her room is pink/green toile design with her walls a very light LIME-Y green .... this picture does it NO justice. The candle holders were bought from ABC Catalog -- remember that place?? I distinctly remember paying $6.95 for the SET .. I'm sure I paid $7000 for shipping, but are they gorgeous or what?? SO perfect for her room, too. I have moved these jokers 4 times and they are like NEW!

SO I love the plates on the wall. It's just the perfect touch. I'm still working in there and my neighbor and I are going to start the tapestry soon. I found the rod for the tapestry at Lowe's for $3.94 (CLEARANCE!!!!) -- such a bargain. I can't wait for ya'll to see the finished product.
