Adding Some Detail To Frames and Another Cute Planter Idea

 Hello Lovely's, today I want to show you how I dressed up 2 frames in our little boy's bathroom.
  


  This  Saturday I discovered HOBBY LOBBY for the first time EVER....lol...we never had one in this area of Western WA until earlier this year. What can I say? It was OVERWHELMING....

 I found these cute little knobs covered in burlap and hung the pictures from twine on them verses boring nails.
  
I also found this cute little copper "R", perfect for my little Robbie's Baby Bath pictures.
 A little rustic star was added on picture #2

Here is a BEFORE and AFTER
 
I love the burlap on the knobs, goes perfect with my little "burlappy" (is that even a word)? trashcan and shower curtain.
Before I go, I wanted to share another cool new find with you. I turned this old copper broiler into a planter for the front yard. Do you like cute planter ideas? Check out my previous post for some inspiration Cute Planter Ideas
It goes beautiful with my  Iron Heart on the gate. 
That's all I got for this week guys.....Thanks for all the sweet comments and well wishes for our Brucie!!! He is doing better this week due to some more meds we added!!!

  1. I was like you until 2 years ago when we moved here and I had a HL about 15 min. away! It's a bit overwhelming the first time you go in, isn't it? I spent 3 hours in the store my first time.....lol! Cute little burlap knobs -- makes such a nice difference.

  2. Hobby Lobby is VERY addicting. It's like Home Goods, Michaels, Joanns and a bunch of your favorite catalogs wrapped into one. I can only go there supervised, lol. The frames looks great and I love the way you hung them from the knobs. Great idea!

  15. I'm so glad that you finally discovered Hobby Lobby! Isn't it great? Keep an eye on their website for the 40% off coupons too. That way if you see something you want that isn't on sale, you can use that coupon. I just show the coupon on my phone at the check-out counter! Love the way those pictures look on the wall. So cute! Like the planter you made too.

  21. Your copper boiler planter is just darling! I love the petunias you chose to put in it. I put gerber daises (3 different colors in a row) in mine last year and loved it! This year I tried begonias and potato vine. Loved that too! Next year, I may have to try yellow petunias. So cute!

    I posted a picture of mine at my blog, Old Blue Silo this summer.. It's filed under "rustic container gardening" if you care to see my copper boiler and a few other ideas!

  25. New to your blog via a blog party. I'm now your newest follower and am looking through back posts to see what the color is on your walls with the burlap pins? Please share the color and brand, so love that color. I love the planter too! I'd put it closer to my front door, it's just that pretty!

    1. Hi there Rivercrest Cottage!!!! Thanks so much for visiting me and the comment. The name of the bathroom color is FILBERT and it is by a brand called DEVINE COLORS. The company is local to Wa State but they do have a website you could order a little sample and have it matched anywhere else. Here is the site

  40. Love the mums in the copper boiler idea. So vintage and cute! I might turn it slightly to angle it into the corner near the trellis and maybe add something tall behind it to make a vignette. And, perhaps some cork stalks and a pumpkin on both sides of the trellis? Hope you don't mind my "nosy" suggestion!
