What a busy day at Loot! I got in a huge order of ceramic knobs earlier today and I had to figure out a way to display them at the shop.
Look at the gorgeous hand painted designs on these knobs!
I went to the local auction this week and I won a huge stack of vintage frames. I remembered seeing a peg board in one of the frames when I was loading them into my storage unit. I went out and dug through the pile of frames and found the perfect display piece for my knobs.
The peg board was already cut down and attached to this old, gold frame. I love it when things come together unexpectedly.
I also ordered a large, chevron stripe stencil, so I decided to dress up the peg board with a little Chalk Paint® design. I painted the frame by dry brushing Florence Chalk Paint® over it lightly, allowing the gold to shine through. I painted the whole board with French Linen and then stenciled the chevron stripes with Old White. I love that Chalk Paint® sticks to any surface and dries so fast. This project only took me about an hour.
An idea, an hour, and a bit of Chalk Paint® is all it took to create the perfect display piece for my knobs.
