In redoing my kitchen we decided to stick to a red white and blue retro colour scheme. After deciding this we designated a "knick knack wall" above the kitchen table, and this was the result:
The shelves are a set of three from Canadian Tire for about $17, we then painted them a white (using PARA Paints- my favourite, a definite recommendation, available at Lowe's or independant retailers)
Then from left to right we have: rooster- Pier 1 a few years ago, mini casserole dish- HomeSense- $4, papered elephant- Michael's- 90 cents on sale, mason jar- on hand, painted metallic on the inside and spraypainted the lid, white mini vase- BouClair- $4, red flower plate- BouClair- $15, and finally the silver apple from BouClair for about $5
