Creating Wall Art from Architectural Salvage

Creating Wall Art from Architectural Salvage

For someone who loves architectural salvage so much, I don’t work with it often enough. Sure, I’ve created a few projects in the past, but far fewer than those using, say…thrift store finds. So, I’m here to add another repurposed architectural salvage project to my collection- this time, using pieces of gingerbread trim that I spied at Maliasmark’s booth during a Vintage Market Days event in Asheville, North Carolina.Read more ›

Wall of Wisdom: Vintage Motto Sampler Gallery

Wall of Wisdom: Vintage Motto Sampler Gallery

So…obviously, this isn’t exactly a project, per se. But it’s an idea that has been slumbering in my mind for a long time now, and I finally set aside the time to put it together.

So, I knew I was onto something and decided to create new ones so that I could share it as a project tutorial here on my blog.Read more ›

Unlocked- Displaying Antique Key Plates

Unlocked- Displaying Antique Key Plates

One of my all-time favorite stories from a trip to Ireland was about the famous colored doors in Dublin. Folklore says that the doors were painted in bright colors so that drunk Irishmen could find their own home after a night of many pints- apparently there had been a slew of “stranger in my bed” incidents, which led to the pretty painted doors.

I’ve now heard that that tale is rubbish- but it left an indelible impression on me and I’ve been enamored with painted antique key plates ever since. This post contains affiliate links for your crafting convenience.Read more ›
