First of all, let me tell you that I live in a small town of about 6,400 and possibly up to 9,000 or 10,000 with small surrounding towns. I must travel at least 100 miles to shop somewhere other than Kmart, Ben Franklin Crafts, and consignment shops for home decor and craft supplies. That's why I am resourceful!
Yes, I framed a Kmart sunflower potholder in an 8 x 10 Kmart light wood frame today!
The over sink shelf is new too! Well, new to me! $3 at the consignment shop. This one started out like this:
I forgot to take a before pic, but I found one just like it on Ebay.
This is the old over sink Martha Stewart Kmart wood shelf and before vignette.
I used a potholder/oven mitt with a sunflower from Kmart for $3.99, and an 8 x 10 frame for $3.99 from Kmart in a light wood frame to match my kitchen cabinets. I cut a piece of burlap to fit the frame and pushed it in the frame with no glass. Then I used double stick carpet tape to adhere the potholder to the framed burlap.
I painted the shelf with Rustoleum black chalkboard paint, distressed it lightly and then covered it with Lundmark paste wax.
I dug into my button stash for some rusty brown, gold and yellow buttons in sunflower colors for the jar. The pitcher with wood utensils and rooster metal paper towel holder were already part of the kitchen.
Have you ever framed a potholder?
