Tree Plate Holder – I don’t heart you anymore….

Tree Star Plate Holder….I don’t heart you anymore….

I have owned this gaudy gold tree plate holder for years…it came with gold rimmed plates…. It felt so good to get the ORB spray paint out and give it an update….

I added some of my peppermint plates that I bought last year on clearance and added my thrift find Santa I bought this summer.

I just began decorating this weekend and my house is a wreck – I had to add on about 5 new containers for my fall decorations. I found 2 boxes of Halloween that I didn’t even use this year. I also figured out that I don’t have alot of Christmas things…..you know what that means – Drats – I have to do more shopping !

Hugs ~ Kammy

At first I was thinking, I cannot believe you are going to toss that...so glad you painted it instead! It's cute. Especially with the red/white plates.

Confessions of a Plate Addict said...

Oh so cute, Kammy! How did people manage before spray paint? I scrolled down and read your Zorro story...funny! My granddog Paco, a chihuahua, was brought up with cats and thinks he is one...bathes himself by licking his paws even! lol Happy week!...Debbie

Yes, ORB covers a multitude of sins :o) Love those plates...I'm hoping to find something similar this week as I brave the crowds of holiday shoppers.

Feel free to link up to my 'Make it for Monday' party if you'd like.

The tree plate holder is so cute with the red and white plates and Santa, Kammy. Go shopping and maybe I'll see you there! LOL!...Christine

Way to revive that plate stand. I love the red and white plates, it made it adorble (plus the black paint job, you can never go wrong with black).

Tammy said...

I love the plates you used! They would go great with my candy themed christmas!

Gee..I didn't think it was so bad before :) but I love it black with your plates. Isn't it awful what a wreck decorating makes the house? Hope you will join Deck the Halls on Tuesday!

Wow...from trash to treasure with just a little spray paint and a clever imagination! I really love how it turned out!

Beverly@My Sew Sweet Studio said...

That is the cutes plate holder...now. I would have passed it up as gold too, but now it is perfect with your little Santa. I would love to know where you got the peppermint plates. I do a lot of decorating in Candy Canes.

ButterYum said...

It's amazing how a little paint can transform something from gaudy to gorgeous!

Tracy Suzanne said...

Hey Kammy. There's so many things with good bones but the finish is dated. This was an excellent example. I love seeing up-cycled items. Those plate and the paint color are perfect.

Hugs...Tracy

Great makeover!!!! I love the peppermint plates!!!!

Rettabug said...

I must be very behind the times as I love the "gaudy gold" look & have lots of it, but I have to admit I've been trying to find ORB spray paint lately. None at Michaels or Home Depot here. :(
I'm going to try Wal-Mart later this week.

I have enjoyed seeing all your recent makeovers.

fondly,
Rettabug

mary'smom said...

Enjoy decorating!
All the best,

Jane said...

I had that same plate holder and unfortunately I think I gave it away...I should have thought about painting it! It looks great paired with the candy cane plates.

Your plate holder looks great and up to date now. Love you plates. I have a plane plate holder that holds three plates but I need some christmas pates. I'll have to keep and eye out for some.
