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 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!

Chalkboard with Chippy Metal and Wood Hooks...Repurposed from Cabinet Doors

 Here is another chalkboard with hooks.  This one is a completely different flair that the one I made for Kara.  Hers is more vintage while this one is a trendy shabby chic with a touch of vintage.  She put hers in her bathroom and uses it to hold her everyday jewelry.  I'm sure she leaves plenty of sweet notes for a special someone on the chalkboard, too. ;)

This board just listed in my Etsy shop HERE.  To see more fun projects be sure to like my FB page, Been There Salvaged That... HERE.
