A "Key" Idea

GW had a 44% off sale for Super Bowl weekend and I bought 2 frames for $2.44.
I have a small blank wall and these keys - can you see where I'm going with this?....

A little bit of black spray paint....
And a quick arrangement for my blank wall:

I'm joining Thrifty Thursday at Tales from Bloggeritaville and Metamorphosis Monday at Between Naps on the Porch...hop on over to see some great ideas people have to share.

  10. Hey Patti! Love this look, and a what a great bargain!?!? Thanks for stopping by the blog. I am not a collector (lanterns) but have recently fell in love with a circa lighting fixture designed by Suzanne Kasler. Very beautiful. So, I went out searching for copies and just happened upon the one in my living room. ;)
