Up cycling old artwork Have you got a piece of art that doesn’t work with your decor? Does it have a great frame? Well don’t throw it out. Up-cycle it! I’ve taken this old painting that was on its way out the door and I’ve turned it into a beautiful/usable piece of art. Ive loved the frame and just needed to come up with an idea of how to bring it back to life. It has a cork background covered in burlap with a gold fleck in it. This piece can now blend with our decor and can be used for multiple things such as a jewellery holder, photo.
Staging that cozy fireside atmosphere for the holidays. Whether you have a real gas or faux fireplace, Try adding some accessorize beyond stockings and garland. To create this warm inviting look. I added a basket with fresh cut logs this add’s the feeling of a real fire Ive also added a blanket for my guests to wrap up with. Also remember to draw interest with different elements allowing your eyes to scan the area instead of just focusing on the mantle. We were able to do this with our favourite christmas addition our XL nutcracker. In my antique searches I found a great pair of old skates to hang on our mirror.
