" 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!

I will be linking this post

to Kathleen's White Wednesday # 145

Much love to all of you

Very cool! At first, I couldn't see what you had done. I thought I was seeing layers of items, not all of them gathered in one frame. Hope your week is wonderful. Tammy

Great idea! I'm a sucker for shabby old frames! Have a great weekend!


Burlap Luxe said...

I dont blame you kate for loving the frame, its my kind of aged and salvage I go after, its the kind of paint patina we all strive to repaint and just cant seam to get just right when we are painting new on old, its a beautiful old find.

I love the vignettes you show in each photo, its just all so beautifully euro-flea market perfect.

Thank you for your visit and the beautiful love you bring with you on each visit, you encourage the best!

Have a beautiful weekend beautiful lady.

Thank you for the sweet comments and the lovely thoughts sent my way. It's been a long year, but now in 2012 I'm ready to move forward into my new life. I've learned a lot along the way, done some healing (not quite finished...but I'm getting there) and deepened my faith. How is Momma doing?
Blessings & hugs,

Kate your vignettes are always so lovely, fresh and inspiring! The Patina of that fab frame would have made me need to break out the smelling salts also! *winks*
