This is the last one of those wall plant holder thingys I got at GW a while back.
I'm gonig for a "shabby chic" kinda thing. Between this and the crash glass, I like the cg better, but hey! What the heck.
I am planning to grout in a royal blue.
Very nice! Love the china, some people aren't fans of shabby chic, but I love it! Blue grout eh, I'm never that brave, black or white for me! Looking forward to seeing it finished.
Beautiful. This is going to be a beauty when you get it done. Can't wait to see it.
You Go Girl! That is really gonna be pretty with the blue grout too. TFS

Texas....It's going to be stunning. I have never seen "gems" that color and they match perfectly with the plates. I love how you cut the plates...I am learning so much just by looking at photos. My husband has a tile cutting saw and I am going to try to use that to cut some plates since I can't buy a ring saw right now. I notice that you glued right onto the MDF. Have you ever had problems with silicone sticking to that background? I bought a kit and used the GEII silicone instead of the glue they included but until I grouted, it seemed a little "wiggly"..(professional grouting term...lol). I hope you will include photos once the blue grout is on...should look amazing.
I changed it up a bit, will post pics later.
Squirelly, I'm not a big fan of shabby chic for myself, but I like to do it. I think what appeals to me is the "puzzle" feel of it.
Gardencrone, I used Weldbond as adhiesive. The substrate (oh, how technical of me!) is wood. I tend to do direct, screw-it-up-as-you-go-method.
Not long ago someone posted a pic of colored grout, if you can remember please let me know.
I have colored before with acrylic paints, but I want a deeper, richer color for this.
I will buy it if I have too, so suggestions will be appreciated.
I love that color. I am the same way, I don't decorate with shabby chic but I love to do it! How funny. Can't wait to see what it looks like grouted.
