From Church Rummage Sale Frame To Farmhouse Biscuit Cutter Display

July 12, 2015

I purchased this wooden, three oval frame at a church rummage sale this spring for 25 cents.

Actually I purchased another similar, three oval frame at the same sale for 25 cents, and almost immediately it became an "EAT" sign with a hook here.  But then I got super busy with flower garden planning and planting, and nothing was done to the second frame.

I also painted the second frame with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White.

I wet distressed the frame with a terry cloth rag, and waxed it with clear wax.  

I also added 1/2" hex chicken wire to the back of the frame with staples.

I downloaded this oval vintage baking powder graphic from Knick of Time blog.  Angie always has great old advertising graphics!

  I tied on two biscuit/cookie cutters to the chicken wire with strips of muslin, and I used a miniature wooden craft clothespin to attach the oval Royal Baking Powder graphic to the center space.

 If you collect vintage kitchen utensils like I do, it's fun to find interesting ways to display them, and this project is very easy too!

This Baking Powder graphic is also available at the Knick of Time blog.   I think I may like it better because the lettering is bigger!

  2. So cute ....always marvel at your great ideas

  3. What a great idea nice to see things get a new life.
    Have a great week.

  4. When I looked at the before picture I was wondering what in the heck a person could do with that....and you showed me a beautiful after. Love it!

  8. Cute idea, Carlene. I used to have my heart cookie cutter collection displayed in my kitchen at a previous home. My husband made an inset shelf display between the studs on one wall. It was a popular display with young children because they could move them around. ;-)
    Thanks for sharing and for hosting. I liked my Mad Tea Party because I have several vintage Alice in Wonderland books on display. Hope that qualifies.

  9. I love the Eat sign! What font did you use for the letters?
