Remember these fun things I picked up for just $12 at my last architectural salvage adventure? (see Part I and Part II)
(Salvaged Woodwork and Doorknob plates)
Well they are now a part of our home decor! Here is what I did with both...
First, the woodwork was terribly dirty (see first photo in this post), so I had to do some scrubbing This is what they looked like after cleaning. Our assumption is that these pieces were removed from a house that had burned down (sad). The majority of what I had to clean off was ash.
Next, we had to put a frame hanger on the back.
Alex nailed it in place for me.
Then up they went on the wall next to the fireplace! I love the rustic woodwork next to the exposed brick.
I got this from Target a year or so ago. It is a shadow box with linen fabric and some vintage looking keys.
I went to Target and picked up this Room Essentials Shadow Box Frame for $9.99
I had some leftover burlap fabric from JoAnne's and cut it into a square to use as the background for the shadow box. I think you can get some of this for $3.99 a yard at their store.
