Wire Frame - Before & After


When my friend Sandi asked me to "make this frame pretty" I knew just what to do with it. I recently gave a similar vintage frame an adorable makeover. With some shabby white paint and alot of sanding the frame itself is transformed...but it was still just a I removed the backing, print and glass and replaced these with rabbit wire. Once this was tacked in place I added vintage ledger paper (thank you my sweet friend Roben-Marie over at for passing along these treasured goodies to me!) to the back edges of the frame giving it a final vintage touch. Now Sandi can use it as a vintage chic magnetic board or even hang her favorite baubles from it! Enjoy!



Pretty Vintage Frame Gets a Makeover

When I found this vintage frame I fell in love with it. It had beautiful scroll work and a lovely oval shape, but it was a yucky gold color. After a nice shabby coat of white paint and good sanding it looked amazing. I took the back off of the frame and removed the glass, added some rabbit wire and now it is a wonderful magnetic board. I also use it to hang things from, earring & hairclips, pins.I love, love it! I plan on doing a small collection of them, all shapes and sizes, that will hang near one another. I will try to post photos of that when the time comes. Enjoy!



Bedroom Beauty Continued

...Well I did hang the piece of ironworks this weekend, but it didn't quite fill the available space as I had hoped...I still like the simplicity of it though...The piece itself is just so pretty! I also made myself a shabby hooked heart pillow and replaced the rosette satin pillow for a time!


Bedroom Beauty


I have been wanting to change these vintage white plates that hang over my bed for a long time...I love them, I just love change more! I found a beautiful scrolled piece of iron work in Wisconsin last year and I have decided to hang it place of the plates. I think it will make a pretty pediment to the headboard. I struggle with the furniture as it is so dark, but to date, I have not had to heart to paint it white...since my husband shares this room and loves the dark furniture I have to make allowances for his happiness too! I will post photographs when I hang the ironwork!







Vintage Sign Letters Get A Makeover

...remember these vintage sign letters? I have been giving them a heavenly makeover! I love how they look with a little bit of the old color showing through. A little sanding and they were so soft and wonderful. Can't wait to see a few of these on display....more to come on that.



home made: hooked heart pillow


All things white...any shade of white, make me happy. New shabby vintage chic heart pillow is no exception. The heart was hooked, as with the wool rugs I do, but instead, I used shredded muslins...a wonderfully chunky feel to it. Available soon in my new etsy shop!
