1st Beadboard Project

I love beadboard! I want it all over my house! Well, all over in a pretty way. But since I am renting I cannot/willnot add it to the house. I can however, decorate with it.

I made this easy-to-make frame using beadboard, wood trim, some faux vintage keyplates and knobs.

Of course I had to paint it with my fav! Heirloom White. The trim is black. I used a walnut glaze to go over the keyplates to give is a vintage look. This frame was created as a copycat of something I saw in some magazine...wish I could remember. {If you know, please share and I will mention it}

I just love how it turned out!

I can now enjoy some beadboard, however minimal it may be.

My other recent love?

Isn't she just so pretty! I've worn her pretty much every day this past week and got a ton of compliments every time!

I need to make more!!! 

What about you? Any new recent loves?

I have been looking for a good tutorial for rosettes, so when I came upon yours the other day, I started making them. Now I'm obsessed with them! :) I am hoping to make necklaces with them soon.

Oh- and yes, that rosette is adorable!!!

Rachel, I am still on the hunt for a good door-to-become-headboard. And I totally want one with an old vintage knob! :)
