Always walking through antique shops and primitive stores and i find these old time washboards. They are pretty much for sale everywhere, in any size!! And yes they are nice just hung up as a vintage looking piece, but i wanted something that would blend more with my painted things, in my laundry room. So I thought i would try painting, and it turned out like this:
This is something that is so simple to make, but would be an awesome wedding or house warming gift. First i painted the metal piece in the middle with a stone-effect, spray paint. After it had dried i painted the top and edges with a flat brown and kind of touched on a lighter brown over that just for some texture, and an older look.
After all they paint had dried, i used stencils to paint on the word Love, and added the star and bow with button. Add a hanger on the back and your ready to hang up!!!! So many people have asked where i got this from. And im proud to say i made it myself. Good luck and Happy krafting! 🙂
