Another unique wall art idea

Although I love Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware, etc.....I don't like my home to look like a magazine page. In addition, I am not fond of their prices. I like a piece here and there from "a store", but otherwise I like one of a kind furniture and art throughout.

Years ago my father gave me a very large antique iron ladle. I had it hanging on my kitchen wall.

Even though it was already unique I had to do what I do best and add some paint to it. I know it is rare for me to use white, but I figured it would go with whatever decor I choose once we renovate our kitchen.

So think outside the box when decorating the walls in your home. They don't always have to be covered with the typical picture or mirror. Have fun and be different!


  1. i love it in the white! i think that was the best choice for it. :)

  2. It looks great painted white! It's such a unique piece--I love it!


  3. This is awesome!! I agree with the wall hanging idea. A friend was over the other night and was asking if I ever use the manual hand mixer that was my grandmother's. It barely fits in the kitchen gadget drawer. I told her I was thinking of hanging it on the wall! Idea confirmed!!!

    Love the ladle white! Is the wall bare brick now or is it white! Love it either way. Interior wall??

    Just got back from vacation for two weeks. Catching up on your you may see a whole bunch of comments from me in the next day or 2!


  4. COOL! I definitely like my home to be unique too. It's so much more personal and fun.

  5. I think your newly painted ladle is unique wall art! You're so right ... there are all kinds of items that look fabulous hung on walls as opposed to your typical picture. I have trays, plates and mirrors all over my home and much prefer them to a hanging picture. These are the things that make our homes so unique unto themselves!

  6. I like how you thought differently and were willing to put something up that's unusual. I like how you also took a risk by painting it white but that risk paid off. Good for you.
