Today is another day full of excitement around here!!! I’m about to show you my Antique Linen Place Mat Wall Deco!
Sounds maybe a bit complicated, but isn’t at all! And let me tell ya, this idea just came to me the other day and I’m so happy that I finally get to show off these Antique Linen Place Mats, that not only used to be my Oma’s (grandma’s) but were made by her about 50 years ago! Isn’t that incredible!?!
She passed away in the mid ninety’s and left us a whole lot of vintage behind. Unfortunately I do not have a lot of it, due to different circumstances, but I’m happy I kept some! They have been stored away in my closet for as long as I have them now. I may have used them as actual place mats maybe one time or so. They were just too pecious to be used as that!
Anyway, the day has come and I’ve finally found a way of show casing these antique place mats the way the ought to be! (and believe me, they are a real “Antique”!) I have not cut them into pieces, or sewn them together, or put stencils on them, no! I left them as they are, with some yellow spots here and there. Check out what I did:
I had made some really cute printables the other day and wanted to hang them up! Below you can print them out if you like them as well! I used some of the beautiful clip art for them from Angie makes , be sure to go check out her blog, you’ll love all her art, she is amazing!
Then, remember my last post about the kitchen towels as window covers, well, after that, I kinda got the idea to do something similar with these lovely place mats! I like the fact, that they are pretty simple and white. They do have lovely details, but I wanted to pair them with something rustic and thought, hanging them on the twine string with the wooden clothes pins was a great combination of both styles! And then, when I saw them hanging there, something was still missing and that’s when my printables came in place!
To print these, just right click and save onto your computer or copy & paste directly to Word or such and click “print”!
I think that’s it for now with the clothes pins! But I just love how I can simply clip on and add on or exchange this decor! Although for now I’ll be sticking to my Oma’s linen place mats!
Thanks again Angie, I love your clip art!!!
