So I can't get enough of damask. It's like I'm addicted. After I made the mod podge frame with some damask wrapping paper for Annalise's little friend, I knew I wanted some of it hanging in my house too!
I began with a key rack that I bought several years ago from Ross for $9.99. (I know that because I always leave the price tags on the backs of my bargains so I'll never forget what a good deal I got!)
I always liked the shape and size of it and how it was a distressed black. I will loudly announce that I never liked the rooster though. (That's a lie. I totally did. I'm embarrassed.)
(Kindly ignore the hideous switchplate. We have the replacement. Sitting uselessly in the garage in a Home Depot bag.)
To my surprise, the rooster was actually just printed on some kind of paper that could be peeled off. I did just that and went to work and came up with this!
To make it, I cut a sheet of the wrapping paper to fit on the backdrop and mod podged it right on. It took me a while to decide what else I wanted to do with it after that. I thought about putting on it a big monogrammed 'F' for our last name, but it just didn't look right. I would have liked to put a quote on there but the whole thing was too busy. I considered putting the word 'Keys' on there somehow, but it seemed stupid to write Keys. Then while I was browing the dollar bin at Michael's I found the perfect thing! Antique key rub-ons! And I knew just what to do! I picked up a small plate from Big Lots for $1.25, applied the rub-ons onto it, and glued it right in the middle.
