DIY Shabby Chic Altered Metal Envelope (DT Project for Reneabouquets)

I was given a set of Home Décor undecorated metal envelopes and immediately knew I wanted to make it into some kind of romantic, shabby chic piece for the month of February, since we all know it is the month of love! I wanted the piece to be warm, inviting, and full of textures. I had seen several versions of handmade fabric envelopes with stuffed fabric hearts on Pinterest and that was the inspiration that I drew from in creating my own version of a "Love Letter"!  I used 3 layers of chipboard hearts (instead of stuffing) covered with textured fabrics for my two largest hearts and for my center heart, I used a Reneabouquets Beautiful Board Lacy Heart Frame. I simply adore the scalloped border and its design allowed me to shape it a little to give it a 3-D effect. I loved the heart so much, I used it again in a smaller size on the envelope itself! I also used a few other of my Reneabouquet Beautiful Board favorites such as, the Quilling Flourishes (located on the larger cream heart), the Cherry Blossom Branches (located on the envelope base to the right side) and an art piece would not be complete without the Decorative Clock Hands! And these are just a few of my favorites on this piece! Who wouldn't love the Beautiful Board Love Locks and Key set hanging off the bow that is attached to the Lacy Heart Frame?   Did you also notice the super teeny tiny Beautiful Board Beautiful Bits Tiny Hearts scattered above the "I" in Bliss? There are several other quality products used in this project...I will list them with links below my You Tube Video which shows this entire project from start to finish.  Before you finish peeking at all the photos....take notice of the exquisite Reneabouquets Tiny Treasures Butterfly (called Ruby Slippers)...doesn't it add the perfect touch?
Thanks for stopping by!

Shabby Chic Altered Miniature Shovel (DT Project for Reneabouquets.com)

Since we are still in the cold months of the year, I decided to create a winter-filled, shabby chic home décor piece! I began with a miniature shovel that I found on sale during Christmas and decided to turn it into a winter piece! The shovel part had enough real estate to make my Winter scene come to life! I added many beautiful pieces (including the exceptionally exquisite Beautiful Board and Printed Beautiful Board product) from Reneabouquets to complete the overall textured quality for a treasured keepsake that can be displayed in any home for years to come. 

Below the pictures will be a link to my YouTube video for a complete start to finish process of how I made this project! I will also add the links to the products used from Reneabouquets.com.

Shabby Chic Winter Wonderland Home Decor (DT project for Reneabouquets)

I decided to create a cute and whimsical, winter-filled, inspirational, shabby chic home décor piece! I began the piece with a Christmas Photo Frame that I found on clearance at a local store for under $2. What a Score! It had enough real estate to make my Winter Wonderland come to life! I added many beautiful pieces (including the exceptionally exquisite Beautiful Board and Printed Beautiful Board product) from Reneabouquets to complete the overall textured quality for a treasured keepsake that can be displayed in any home for years to come. My favorite pieces of Beautiful Board product on this project have got to be all the shabby and vintage snowflakes
and the Printed Ice Skater diecut!

Shabby Chic Altered Home Decor Photo Frame (DT Project for Reneabouquets)

I wanted to create a beautiful gift for my best friend of 30 years, as a Christmas gift. I purchased a wood sign with a heartwarming quote and a wood picture frame. I painted the picture frame with Prima Heavy Black Gesso and then using a white Folk Art Home Décor Chalk paint and a foam brush, I dry brushed on some white to give a distressed look to match the distressed look of the wood sign. I then used E6000 to glue the frame to the sign. I tried to stay within the distressed feel of sign so I recolored a recent photo of us to black and white so that it would lend a more timeless feel. I added beautiful pieces (including the exquisite Beautiful Board product) from Reneabouquets to complete the overall textured quality for a treasured keepsake that can be displayed in her home for years to come.

Shabby Chic/Vintage Altered Christmas Sled (DT project for Reneabouquets)

Well, how many other descriptive words could I get into the title for this project! LOL! But I decided to create a shabby chic/vintage wonderland full of Christmas warmth and traditional colors of reds, and whites! I also wanted to incorporate a little bit of a rustic country feel by adding some elements such as painted "rusty" bells, "sugared" bells, a Beautiful Printed Board called "Christmas Holly" that I feel adds further to the rustic, country, vintage feel. I wanted this project to be simple, inviting and match some of the other décor I have created this holiday season. I think it worked out perfectly and am pleased to have it displayed in my home! This project was very easy to do with beautiful products from Reneabouquets!! The links to the products I used from Reneabouquets will be below!
I've included my Youtube Video which shows this process in a start to finish manner with discussion at the end, in detail, about the products I used.

Shabby Chic Bedspring Snowflake (DT Project for Reneabouquets)

I decided to create a shabby chic, winter-filled wonderland full of warmth and inviting colors of creams, whites, frosty blues and even a tiny amount of teal! I wanted to incorporate a rusty old bedspring as the base (but yikes!!! I felt terribly guilty about painting it! LOL!) and a snowflake template I found on the internet that I resized, machine stitched and stuffed! I am currently creating for upcoming Christmas bazaars and wanted to design a quick, yet simple, inviting alternative for home décor for the holidays!
This was very easy to do with beautiful products from Reneabouquets!!

Shabby Chic DIY Altered Home Decor Keepsake (DT Project for Reneabouquets)

I wanted to create a beautiful gift for a friend, (whose daughter had recently married this last summer) and the minute she popped a few pictures onto social media, I saw them, had to have them for my project and saved them quickly to my album. I actually wasn't sure which photo I was going to use for this project until I received a new Beautiful Board release from Reneabouquets...the "Tree Frame" (link will be below). It went perfectly with this photo of the bride, so picturesque, in front of the silhouetted tree. I used a Dollar Tree Wood Home Décor piece, removed the "yarn art" and painted it with Prima Heavy Black Gesso. I tried to stay within the feel of my friend's home colors of greys, stones, and natural shades, recolored the photo just a bit to give it a more timeless feel, and added beautiful pieces (including the exquisite Beautiful Board product) from Reneabouquets to complete the overall enchanting, textured quality for a treasured keepsake that can be displayed in her home for years to come.
