Shopping at Mom's (decorating on a slim budget)

Went shopping at moms on Saturday. Here is some of what I found (remember slim budget)
#1 Thing was this shelf....aka plate and cup holder. It was gold, I painted it black. Gold wouldn't go to well on yellow walls. It really looks alot better! I also brought back a few plates, (she has tons of plates) but I only wanted a few. I don't want to go too crazy with rooster plates. Then I added a few spoons and some red checkered dish towels and TaDah! It looks kinda French country to me!
#2 Rooster picture (painted window screen). The frame was green, I repainted it black and added some white to the edges. I was going to use red, but red didn't cover over the green. Then I just added a black and white small checkered ribbon to hang it with. The Rooster looks lonely, but I'm sure over time I will add something.
