Your next decorating element might be hiding just below your nose.
A few weeks ago, I shared the hutch makeover and a new wall color.
I’m super happy with the new color even though it wasn’t the color I meant to purchase.
That’s a whole story in it’s self. Maybe I’ll share that another day.
Anyways, the grey gives the room a cozier feeling then the bright white/blue paint I previously had.
My home was built in 1920. Back then they used small white ceramic insulators when wiring a house.
Lucky for me, the people that rewired my house didn’t remove all of the old wiring out of the basement. Most of the old wires have been removed, but they left the old ceramic insultors.
I grabbed a hammer and started pulling those beauties out of the ceiling.
I stored them in a box till I found just the right project.
Fast forward to today.
Using the original nails, I pounded three of the insulators into an old chippy-paint panel left from the old rugged backdoor that graced our back porch when we bought the house.
The chippy-paint door panel and the insulators have a new purpose.
Together they’re art.
Do you love the look of insulators? What would you use them for if you had a set? Drop me a comment below.
