Framed Vintage Silverware

Pin It



I have a frame addiction. If you have read my blog, you have already seen me transform and/or frame things here, here, and here.

I found some great vintage silverware in Canton. I knew I wanted to frame them for my kitchen. I loved how old they look....


I went to Goodwill and found yet another frame that needed to be rescued! Love the artwork....


I spray painted it Valspar Urban beige, and using my own glaze (find out how you can make your own glaze in this project) distressed it a little. I then added some burlap for the background. Now, I thought the burlap made it look a little washed out, so I spray painted the burlap too. I used Krylon Georgia Clay (the red would go well in my kitchen).Here's what it looks like.


I hot glued on the silverware, and voila! Framed silverware for the kitchen.
(sorry for the weird light in this one....my camera is acting up) Love the interesting details!
Total cost:
Silverware = 75 cents
Burlap = free (already had on hand)
Frame = $1.99 at Goodwill
Spraypaint = free (leftover from other projects)


I promise that my next post will not involve a frame :D

  2. Cure idea. The spoon resembles a set of silverware I have that belonged to a relative. Funny to spot it on your post.

  3. This is super fun. I first of all love the flatware, love the frame and sticking them all together looks great. It has just a touch of whimsy and a classic look all at the same time. Thanks for linking up to Be Inspired today...by the way, I love your blog.

  8. Your thrift store finds turned creative projects are amazing! I too was never really in thrift stores as a child and have just recently started poking around in them to see if I can find treasures or fun projects... you've inspired me so! =) I also LOVE framing things but never even THOUGHT about livening up some old thrift store frames! So many ideas, thank you, thank you!
