Missed Projects...

If haven't liked my Facebook page yet, you've probably missed seeing several projects.  I'm posting pictures of several of them below.  For more details be sure to visit Been There Salvaged That. 

There's also going to be a giveaway in the very near future.  All the details will be posted on Been There Salvaged That.  You all are the first to know as I've not yet mentioned the giveaway over there. :)

Here's a snapshot of my latest projects.  All vinyl and stencils were cut on a Silhouette.

A bright and fun sign created on a rainy day.

Another version of my rustic door.

Custom order accented with purple and aqua.

A work in progress...will update with vinyl, soon!

Thanks for looking!

Rustic Door - Praise Him in the Hallway

I was asked to create a door with the quote - Until God opens the next door, Praise him in the hallway.

Here's my take on it...

Love the rustic, distressed charm of this door.  So shabby chic!

The ornate hardware and ribbon add a touch of vintage softness.  To me the key is a subtle reminder that we need to wait for God to open the next door and not try to do it on our own.

Gotta love big rustic hinges.  They remind me of something you might find on an old barn door or farm shed.

I will be offering these in my shop on a made to order basis... Been There Salvaged That

Thank you for looking!

My Old Window Found a Home

In case you forgot how the window looked when I found it...

Now a focal point above our television...

One of these days I need to paint the table our electronics sit on.  Ohhh...one of these days, lol!
I used my Silhouette to cut out the word, "Family" and added a small heart for an extra touch.

For the Love of Old Windows

One of my favorite treasure hunt finds is a good old window.  Even more exciting if the old hardware is still attached. :)

 It's surprising how well all the years of gunk and grime wash away with a little elbow grease.  Such a good feeling to bring a piece of time gone by, back to life.   
I used my Silhouette to create the word "family" and added the heart for a special touch.  It will hang in the living/family room.

Sometimes time is short and I don't always get all my projects and vintage finds posted to my blog.  Be sure to check out my facebook  page to see more...  Been There Salvaged That

From Picture Frame to Magnetic Board

A new look for an old thrift store frame.  It was missing the glass and painted gold.  I spray painted it ivory and added a piece of sheet steel to the back to make a framed magnetic board.  The metal flower magnets are the icing on the cake...so cute!  I will use the frame to hold a snapshot.

Laundry Room Signs & Clothesline Banner

I love shabby, chippy, painted wood signs for decorating.  So much fun!  Here is one I made for my laundry room.  Along with a cute little clothesline topper.
As you can see, I have very bright aqua walls.  Nice and cheery, but hard to find the right wall decor.  I should have painted the walls a neutral color and accented with aqua like I did in the kitchen...sigh.   Since I don't like to paint they will probably be bright aqua for a good while.  :)


Here is one I made for my Etsy shop
You can find it HERE

Thanks for stopping by!
