baby utensils... revamped.

This is going to be quick as I'm not feeling well at all today...

Remember my baby utensils project here? Well I kept feeling like all three frames needed a larger frame around them to make them look like one...

Then it hit me, thought wise not literally, I had this frame with some fabric in it hanging in our bathroom and the glass had broken during our move last year so I didn't need to worry about finding a new place for it to go...
I first tried some burlap but wasn't sure I likes how much the silverware was lost in the darkness of the burlap color and I wanted to leave the silverware tarnished to give the look of their true age...
So I tried the white matte that was previously in the frame, it brightened it up a little more but the silverware was still lost...
So I went out and bought some silvery grey linen and love how it turned out!


It looks so much more complete now! I used the same method I used the first time around only this time I wrapped the fabric around the backing of the frame sicne there was no glass. You can read how it's put together here.



Now I must go and rest as my hubby directed me to do! Not sure if I will be back on to post this week, between being sick and trying to prepare for a moving sale on Sat I think I may be a little busy the rest of the week! If you're south of Tampa, north of Sarasota and want to come to the moving sale email me and I'll give you directions...

iOK, I think you have changed your header about three times since I have been following. You will find it. Love the baby silverware ideas.

This is SO cute! I really, really love this idea and have been trying to think of something to put on a wall in my kitchen and I think the framed utensils are just the thing! If I do this I'll post and link back to you for the inspiration. Great idea!
