From Goodwill to My Kitchen

I took a recent Goodwill find and turned it into this adorable hook to hold my pot holders in my kitchen.

This is what the hook originally looked like. I knew it would be easy to make it into something I love …

I started by painting the entire plaque with white acrylic paint.

Then I used Wendy Vecchi’s faux graniteware technique on the hook. The little medallion I coated in Wendy’s embossing powder. But, it seemed a little bright (I didn’t want it to look like McDonald’s) so I added a bit of her Potting Soil Archival Ink to soften the yellow.

Then I covered the plaque in Graphic 45’s Home Sweet Home papers. I love this collection!
