I saw something on Pinterest (story of my life!) and knew
that I wanted to replicate this project in my kitchen:
Framed Vintage Recipes
I love how they turned out!!!
But these aren't just random vintage recipes-
these are from my Mamaw, a genteel Southern lady who
loved to cook for her family, all gathered in her home.
Since I was doing this "on the dime",
I collected some frames via garage sales & family rejects...
...and gave them several coats of paint...
...this paint, to be specific...
...transforming yucky colors like this...
...into this lovely shade of gray...or grey:)
This frame had been gold but after several coats, it was like new:)
I'm no spray paint expert, but I was more confident after completing this project:)
I chose specific recipes (like "Congealed Salad")
and then placed them on an archival quality matte (Michaels) to preserve their life
I highly recommend using archival quality!!!
Paint: $4.50 (Joann - 40% coupon)
Matte: $8ish (still have a lot left for another project!)
Total Cost: <$15
As the final touch, I added a note from me,
written as a young child stating: "To Mamaw, Love From Tiffany" under her photo.
These are now hung in my kitchen, in a place of honor
and I love knowing that my Mamaw is watching over me as I cook for my family:)
Thanks for stopping by,
