If you will remember last week’s Goodwill finds included this frame…
And this frame….
And this valance and some old silverware…
I turned the frames and silverware into this….
Apparently I am unable to master an iron on transfer, so I improvised…..
I painted and distressed the frames with a gel stain…. used some scrapbook paper as the background and hot glued the silverware in place….
Hung them in my dining room and I really like it! Thank Goodness!
Steve asked me if I was going to polish them before I glued them in. Nope, I like the tarnished look…
I turned the valance into a long pillow for my bed. Now, people, I actually used the sewing machine….
I am so proud to say that I did not cuss one time!!
Didn’t cry either…..I am so proud of myself!
Now, I do realize, it wasn’t hard….basically a straight stitch….
But HEY! Gotta start somewhere right??
I measured to see how long I needed the pillow to be, and cut off the valance. I folded the pillow so the little pleated part on the bottom was in the middle of the pillow, and stitched her up!
Stuffed her and there you go!
