Romantic Homes Magazine is sometimes hit or miss. The latest edition, the August 2016 issue, is one of those hits! So many great ideas in here.
Two distressed projects in the magazine immediately caught my eye because of how heavily distressed they are. I already have old projects that are similar, I guess I just need to distress the heck out of mine.
The chalkboard I showed two weeks ago, for Five on Friday, just needs some heavy distressing and it could easily hold the hanging jar with flowers as the magazine's chalkboard above does.
And when I saw this picture of a heavily distressed wood plaque with a large hook, I thought of a similar one I made last year.
Back then I used an old outdated picture and a deer hook to make a this project for my laundry room to hold my hangers. Sorry for the shadows. It hangs in the laundry room with very little natural light so the overhead light had to be on.
Here's the original wooden picture that I used to make the hanger. Obviously not my style in its original state. I bought it a few years ago at a garage sale for $1.00 just for this type of project.
As usual, I didn't receive any money for my opinion. In fact, I let my subscription to Romantic Homes expire two months ago so I had to pay full price for this issue. But I was happy to buy it as I truly loved almost every page.
Thanks for dropping by!
