A while ago I posted a photo of the dining room wall in our old house, complete with a spoon holder I had picked up on one of my many days spent wandering around my favorite thrift stores. I'd filled that holder with spoons that had once belonged to my Nana. Upon seeing that post, my mother informed me that she had plenty more where they came from and when I went back to Australia over Christmas last year she handed me another bag full.
Of course this meant more thrift shopping, but I found the perfect spoon holder. It was very different from the last one, which made it even more perfect. I love an eclectic mix of items, and don't believe things should be exactly the same as everything else. It's what gives my walls personality.
I decided to paint this one with Americana Decor Chalky Finish paint in 'vintage'. Very fitting I thought.
