Butterfly... Walk On By

A few days ago I was at one of our local thrift stores and happened upon these filigree butterfly beauties. I almost walked straight on by...but I stopped and for 50 cents a piece and a bit of spray paint I thought I could exact a mighty change in them.

Here's what this corner has looked like for the last nine years or so...well...except there used to be a bunch of dead roses in the pale green thing. I finally got rid of those dust catchers last week.

Butterflies painted and hung...still missing something.

I also had a chrome serving tray which happened to be magnetic. Threw a quick coat of spray paint on the pretty lady and she was ready to join her butterfly friends.

I ended up covering a few button molds with fabric and gluing magnets to the back. Added a picture of the flamingos we saw at the zoo last Saturday to give it a pop of color.

Hope you all have a great weekend!
