Today’s reader featured project is a gorgeous Grain Sack Glass Knob Hanger that was submitted by Mary from Vintage Reflections! Here is what Mary had to say about her project…
“I’ve had this knob hanger for over a year now. I had bought two of them actually because they were very shabby chic looking. They each had shabby wallpaper and distressed to look vintage with cute knobs. Problem is , they didn’t really look good hanging anywhere in my house. Then one day I painted one white and decided to embellish it with graphics. Everyone around me liked it except for me. I felt like I had rushed into it and I wasn’t happy with it. It’s an odd piece because of the knobs in the middle so that hadn’t helped either trying to fit graphics around them. So I decided to repaint it. After all, I had nothing to lose by trying. I didn’t know what exactly I wanted but I started painting it in grey chalky paint. Once I saw it painted, inspiration hit me. I wanted it to have those gorgeous french grain sack stripes. So I painted the panels white (also chalk paint) and then used frog tape to paint the stripes in a french grey blue chalk paint. All paint colours are my own mixes using my own chalky paint recipe. It looked so nice once done painting, but it needed graphics. I didn’t want to overdo it but didn’t want it to be too plain either. And, it had to go around the knobs too! So, I browsed the graphics fairy site which is so fun to do with a cup of coffee by the way! I started loving the idea of a wreath and then I saw the perfect classic wreath and I knew it was perfect for my knob hanger!! I sized them and printed them and transferred them with goo remover. I also used half of a flower graphic for the address. I added my own french text and numbers just to fill it up a little more! Now I can say I love it and I’m definitely hanging this up. I love how french it looks.”
