The framed silverware and grater will hang in her kitchen. We found a couple of frames, removed the glass and the backing, stapled on some wire, which we lightly painted brown to give it a more worn look, and then just tied the pieces on with raffia. Super simple and SUPER cute!
The washboard will be sitting on the mantle above her fireplace. Behind the mantle is a gorgeous rock chimney, but the original wood color of the washboard blended in with the rock. We painted it in cream, gave it a slightly distressed finish, and then for a personal touch we added a monogram for the family name.
This darling miniature parlor chair will sit next to the washboard on the mantel. We gave it the same cream distressed finish and then added some pops of color as accents. We found this quaint little frame and then wired on some beautiful red flowers with tea-dyed accents to add to the heirloom feel of setting. We also placed a small faux book in the same color on the chair.
It so fun to see the wonderful transformation that just a few small items can take and how these little changes can add so much to a room.!
