'Antiques'

I have three boxes FULL of old wooded blinds (thanks to my cousin). I have yet to discover what I'm going to do with all of them, but we'll start with this...

I simply wanted a sign that said ANTIQUES on it. I cut and then hot glued the blinds on this old board. I painted it all a dark brown and edge-sprayed it ivory. I made some one time use stencils out of cardstock (that took me about two lifetimes), and used an ivory paint to stencil on the word ANTIQUES.
This is what it looks like on my wall... :) Makes me happy.
Pretty easy peasy...but it comes in more handy than a simple decor...it worked PERFECTLY for this photoshoot last week of this beautiful baby girl in her beautiful vintage blessing dress and bonnett!
