" Frame It Vintage "

When I found this vintage frame

my heart skipped a beat.

I was truly {swooning}

over the patina that was covering the wood.

I decided instead of another chalkboard

maybe we could use some of our scrap pieces

in our work shed.

{ broken shutter & reclaimed scraps }

Using the frame as a template

he attached the pieces to the underside of the frame

then hung it as large art work

directly to the wall.

Then I added elements

that I love using...

Love the rustic feel...

It fit perfectly over our vintage dresser

Here is the full length shot of the frame

after we first finished.

Have a beautiful week my lovelies!

to Kathleen's White Wednesday # 145

Much love to all of you

White Wednesday " rustic spring "

Rustic elements help create the look

and feel in our home to

welcome the spring season...

Using reclaimed wood that I have white washed

in some areas, old window frames & shutters...

Beautiful twigs and coral

are always used throughout my home

giving that use of nature and sea...

Every pillow in our home

is made by the beautiful and talented

I found a piece of an old wood scaffold

at a yard sale and it creates another

beautiful backdrop in a corner of the room...

I mix grays and whites to give that

soft neutral look that I love...

{I love age worn wood}

Spanish moss in the natural color

is the perfect filler for my urns.

May your spring season be filled with blessings...

Love to each of you

" dry brushed whites "

I love dry brush painting the pieces

that I use in our home.

It is such a delight to paint on old bare wood...

I salvaged a few old doors

from an old building...

they blend well with our coastal decor...

I was so excited to pick up

new pillows from my friend Rose at

Her designs always look lovely

in our home...


touches of spring...

I will be linking this post to Kathleen's

Have a wonderful week

my lovelies...
