Trellis~Not Just For Outside!

On a recent garage sale hunt for treasures, I found a unique trellis for $4.  You can see my post of that from Week 7 of garage sale finds in my weekly feature, Diamonds In The Rough! HERE.

My full intention for this trellis was the traditional, put-it-outside-and-grow-a-vine-on-it!

 As I was cleaning it yesterday and sanding it to get it ready for new paint,
I had one of these...


A Light bulb moment!

I decided that it would add texture and whimsy INSIDE the house! So I mulled this idea over in my head and came up with a plan.

In my master bedroom, I have a wall next to the faux fireplace that holds vintage purses on drawer knobs mounted to the wall.

I figured that the awesome and unique trellis could do that job better AND do it with whimsy. Plus, I decided to leave the trellis shabby and not give it a new face lift with paint. 

So I filled all the holes in the wall and painted them with the green paint to repair the damage I had done. (I move things around on my walls A LOT, so I have to fix all the holes I cause, but hey, thats what happens when you have a decor illness like I do!)

While the paint was drying, I ventured into my stash of hand painted knobs I designed and painted a few years back.

I laid the trellis on the floor and placed the purses where I thought they would look good. I then knew where to place the knobs.  Instead of drilling holes in the trellis and using screws, I just brought out the Super Glue and glued the knobs right onto the trellis.

Now for the reveal! I am in love with the look (at least for now) and even have one knob without a purse so I can have something to find on my Diamonds In The Rough! treasure hunts! Enjoy...

  11. so funny, I hung one almost just like it in my kitchen about 10 years ago!!!...come on over for a visit and take a peek...I think it's under the molding post!!...nice to meet you...love the trellis....Mariaelena

  12. You are amazing! I didn't think it was possible for the purses to look any better than they already did arranged on your wall so cleverly, but this trellis treatment is EVEN BETTER! It totally ties in with your fireplace and dress form decor. And the knobs you painted are very McKenzie-Childs! Are they wood, or ceramic? You did a great job on them as well!



  13. Now THAT was a truly awesome "lightbulb' moment!

  14. Terry, You are so talented! I never would have thought of hanging vintage purses..but yours look great on that trellis. :o)
