Recently we went to Portland, Oregon for a family wedding. Because Monticello Antique Marketplace is very close to the airport, it's our first stop when we arrive in town. We were lucky enough to get there during their Fall Show, which is always filled to the brim with great treasures!
One of the things I found was this great dishtowel. I knew I wouldn't be using it as a dishtowel since the graphics were so cute.
We decided to make a frame for it using pallet wood. It took two pallet boards to make the frame.
I used my handy-dandy wood aging technique on the inside edges where the cut marks were, so that they'd look old too. (if you don't want to click the link, the secret is Apple Cider Vinegar and Steel wool)
He cut a piece of hardboard to attach the dishtowel to. We used spray adhesive on the board, then used a rolling pin to attach the dishtowel to the board. We then put that in the frame, used glazing points to hold it in, added some tape around the edges, and a wire stapled across the back to hang it.
The dishtowel was $8. We had everything else on hand, so I'd say $8 for a neat piece of art is worth it! :)
Thanks for your visit!
