It’s Monday my dear friends! I hope that everyone has had a beautiful weekend.
I have been busy this weekend with a few new projects and I can’t wait to share one with you, of course this was fun, easy and didn’t cost me much. These are my rules! LOL
I bought this great old screen a couple of weeks ago. Some times I set my finds in my home and look at them for a few days until the creative juices start to flow, that’s what I did with this one.
Here is what I did. I cut the screen off of the frame then sanded it really good. I then painted on one coat of my favorite crackle (click above photo), I let it dry for about 30 minutes, then gave it a thin coat of white flat paint. I let this dry over night.
I had this great old lace curtain piece that I decided to use on the screen.
I then cut and it to fit the screen, then stabled it on. Easy, RIGHT?!
Are you ready to see how it turned out? Here we go . . .
I have a huge long wall that I needed to break up and this vintage screen worked out perfect. I was still able to add some of my favorite pieces to it.
I really love taking something that is old and discarded and making it beautiful and useful again. The screen adds a lot of character to the wall.
I hope that I have given you some inspiration to take something out of the ordinary and make into a loving part of your home. If anything you will have a great conversation piece. To me it is very fulfilling to work on a piece and then enjoy it.
See you soon!
