last week while looking at things on eBay i ran across these Martha Stewart for Wedgwood "Conservatory" lunch plates for $1.75 each. that's right...$1.75! of course i have the willpower of a dog in a meat locker, so i bought 8.
|i used the same approach as with the dining room picture hanging-make templates.|
|i drew out some sketches (and wished i had ordered 12 plates), then taped them up. the pyramid shape won...|
|with a little tweaking.|
|i marked each one and put the nail right through the template, then ripped the templates off. easy as pie!|
|the tweaked plates are off just enough to not look too perfect, and hide the fact that a real pyramid would have required two more. the colors really are perfect.|
|since i will one day get a bigger bed (i hope) there really is no need for a headboard now, so this is perfect. i love walking past the room and not seeing a big empty space above the bed.|
