Carved wood appliques to the rescue again!

I sure do LOVE these carved wood appliques!  So much so that we will soon be carrying them in our store, and possibly even sell them here via our blog (if there is enough demand.  Is there???)  I’ve ordered about a dozen different sizes/styles.

So, here is another sadly outdated country heart accessory, this time it’s a quilt rack.

It’s in perfectly good shape, just very outdated.

I just glued on one of my handy~dandy wood applique to cover up the heart . . .

And spray painted it black.  Now it’s totally chic!

(okay, actually I wanted it to be WHITE at first, but after two GOOD coats of white paint, the pine knots were still showing through.  So I gave it a coat of KILZ primer, then a couple coats of some CREAM paint.  And the knots STILL showed through!!  Thusly I finally succumbed to using the black.  Which I am entirely happy with; but just learn from my mistake that light color paints will NOT cover pine knots!)
