Holiday home Christmas vignettes {Newbie party started}

So here we continue with "Holiday home" decorating for Christmas.  What better way, than creating a pretty inexpensive Christmas Kitchen vignette. Not exactly  sure what this board was, however at $1.99 this ugly thing was coming home with me. {Goodwill purchase}

I am sure at one time or another we have all seen these shelves perhaps at our Gramma's house.
Lovely little duck or something on there.
I used my Safari green better homes and gardens paint color, and went to it.

The neat thing about this piece is that it has two holes.  My intent was to use mason jars in them, however the hole was too large.
I found a glass instead and it fit perfectly.

Actually, only one glass fit perfectly, the other hole was not the same exact size and the glass slipped through the hole..
no worries, I caught it!

So my solution for the other side was too put a cute little vintage doily and display some Christmas cheer.

I propped a Christmas joy plate...

And there you have a cute little display shelf, for a buck 99!

Have a great day!

Oh Debbie- I love it- I have seen several of those UGLY ducklings here and there over the years. I LOVE that Safari green color. It is wonderful. I love the way you have dressed it for Christmas!

I have to tell you my "trick". I have a holder that is just a tad too big for the glass that I wanted to use in it. I wrapped it tightly right at the point of contact with clear Saran wrap. Presto. It did not slip through and was a basically invisible "fix"~xo Diana
