Framed Silverware Copy Cat

Sorry for the glare! Y'all know I'm camera challenged around here.
The shadowbox frame was dirt cheap because the glass was broken
The faux silverware was free out of the trash from work ie: broken wall decor
The mini frame in corner was free, same as the silverware
I purchased a pack of vintage sheet music months ago on sale at local antique shop
Basically I ripped and tore the sheet music down to size & distressed inked the edges
Hot glued the faux silverware after careful eyeball meausuring
Stamped our inital on a piece of cardstock and glued the whole thing to the corner
It now lives on my wall above the sideboard in the dining room
shhhh... don't tell anyone but I've still not painted that sideboard yet
for shame!
I think my next post will be about the color crisis I'm having choosing between
creamy white!
I seriously need help!

Hey Kitty,

It turned out GREAT!! I am in love right now with aqua/turquoise (like back from the 50's). I am going to HAVE to get some cans of spray paint and paint some of my outside pots and maybe a chair and see if I can get it out of my system!!!

Hi Ms. Kitty! I love your sheet music project! That is one thrifty treasure I have yet to stumble upon!

My mouth dropped when I saw your pleater for $15.00. I used to pay $7-$10 to have Ashley's dresses pleated when she was small. I did a lot of smocking for her. Loved it! I always wanted a pleater, but was young, with a young family, and couldn't afford it at the time! That was a great price!!!

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend! ~hugs, Rhonda :)
