An Old Screen

This MIGHT be my favorite thing. Ok, I say that about everything. But I LOVE this old framed screen.
I found it in “The Girls on Tenth” in North Wilkesboro. The owner of “The Vintage Home,” Michelle, was using it to display jewelry. I spotted it and asked her immediately if it was for sale. She wasn’t selling it, but had gotten it from a friend of hers who was replacing all of the screens in her historic home. She called her friend, and sure enough, she put aside a screen for me. I’m using it to hang jewelry, pictures, and miscellaneous things that make me smile.

I love how chippy it is. I covered it in polyacrylic to prevent it from chipping any further.

To hang the necklaces, I clipped pieces of galvanized wire and bent them with pliers to make “S” shapes. I stuck them in the screen and hung the necklaces from them.

I am so excited to find a way to store my jewelry and decorate a bare wall in our bedroom!
