I’m always looking for unique ways to display art in my home. I have many pieces of framed artwork but I like to change things up from time to time.
I have been collecting silver platters for quite some time and had built up quite the collection and I knew I wanted to display them in a unique way.
I decided to place them on the wall a few months ago and today I’ve added some spring flowers to the platters that you can download.
I’ll show you how I created this wall display, what I did with the platters and how I added the spring flowers.
This display gives such impact and it is so easy! The best type of projects, in my opinion.
Let me show you how I displayed spring flowers on silver platters in two easy tutorials below.
1. Silver Platters as Wall Art
Some of these platters are real silver and some are faux. I painted the centres of each platter. You definitely don’t have to paint them. The silver platters themselves on the wall would look gorgeous!
I just wanted to do something unique to them. Like wood furniture, you have to decide if you’d love them painted or left original. It’s up to you to decide!
- painter’s tape (I like Frogtape and I’m not being paid to say that)
- black chalkboard paint in spray can
- Command Strips with velcro
- Apply painter’s tape to the edges of each platter. Make sure you apply the tape to the area that you don’t want sprayed.
- Spray the middle of the platters with the chalkboard paint in a well ventilated area (like outside or in a garage). Spray 1-2 coats.
- Once dry, peel off the painter’s tape (you can also peel off the painter’s tape when the paint is still wet too but if you need to repaint some areas, reapplying the painter’s tape will be a pain.
- Stick velcro Command Strips onto the backs of the platters. Peel off the wall side of the tape and press into place onto the wall.
- I started with the centre platter, then added platters from the 4 corners of the first platter and finally the three small ones to fill it in.
2. Spring Flowers Art
- Print the spring flower printable onto card stock and cut to the shape you want. I used a bowl to make a perfect circle around the flowers.
- Using double-sided tape, add to middle of platter.
I think they turned out so pretty.
It’s just a little pop of color against the black and silver that looks so spring-like.
The different patinas of the silver look so pretty too.
I have a full spring tour tomorrow that you won’t want to miss that shows more of my living room and dining room all decorated for spring!
