I love the shape of this headboard and was fortunate to get 2 sets of head and foot boards at a yard sale, and each one had 2 of these shapely pieces on them, so I had 8 of them I’ve been able to create signs and coat racks on.
I’ve done a similar project for her in the past for her, with the same images added to an antique chair back that I added coat hooks to.
I selected 3 of the images and grouped them together. The original page had some slight wear, so I digitally “repaired” those areas, then had the image printed at Staples. It costs about $1 to have it printed in color and the ink doesn’t smear when using decoupage medium on it.
I don’t like to let anything go to waste that can be used for other projects, so I’m saving the spindles to find a future use for, and I use the centers of the side posts on some of my tiered enamelware stands, like this one. Many of my tiered stands can be seen here, here and here.
I cut down the bed side rails into smaller sections and create signs like this one with those pieces.
Here the individual hat fashion images, plus 1 extra, which are ready to be printed as framed art, or used for other projects.
The original page was generously sent to me from Audrey @ Timeless Treasures.
Take a look at the rest of my royalty free antique images HERE. I post new ones each week for you to use for your projects and designs.
