Workin’ With What Ya Got- A Cute Accent


I love to look around my home and find things that were right in front of me all along but don’t get noticed. Then I like to make them over (or under depending on the item) to really “shine”.

I had this cute little frame:


It’s very shabby chic.


I took out the glass frame (which, as I am typing this, I realize that this isn’t the right frame. This is for another project/blog post but you get the idea) and spray painted it black.

Then I found this on my decor shelf in the basement:


I got this Christmas ornamentย at Kohl’s after Christmas for $1.50.

I love keys, old keys, things that look like keys but I had no idea where to put this.

So I spray painted the key red and got out some glue:



And next thing you know:




Decor that didn’t cost me a dime.

    Cool idea! ๐Ÿ™‚ Sadly my local oppie charges more than $1 for frames. Sad isn't it. I will just have to keep my eyes open!
