Folk Art in the Kitchen

Projects don't have to be large in order to be fun.  In fact, often its the small detail that completes a room.  

Recently I helped a client put the finishing touch on a piece of folk art for her kitchen.

The homeowners found this unique piece of art made from re-purposed architectural materials while they were on vacation.  Its a great conversation piece for her new kitchen. 

Made from old newel posts, a headboard and some skirting, it resembles a fireplace, doesn't it?

We agreed that it needed a little extra character, so one snowy afternoon, I added a bit of dark brown glaze. Just enough to settle in the cracks, distress the piece, and show off the profile of the wood. 


 I can think of so many ways to decorate this for each changing season, can't you?
