Home Sweet Home

I was at the thrift store last week and came across this little cross stitched piece.  I thought it was kind of cute and could go somewhere in the new house..only problem, it had a few stains.

It was only 50 cents so I just bought it and thought I would live with it.  Then I thought to tea dye the whole thing and then the stains wouldn’t be noticeable.  So I took the cross stitch out of the frame and got my tea dye.

I sprayed it quite heavily and then let it dry.

Here’s what it looks like now…the darker spots are still there but being it’s all darker, the spots don’t seem wrong.

I am hoping this will go in of the upstairs bedrooms.  I am thinking one with be grey walls and this would look cute there.

I love 50 cents finds…and I love my thrift stores!!

    Can you imagine how many hours went into making that wall hanging.? Great grandma probably made that and no one else wanted it. It finally found a good home.

    Love what you did with the sampler. I am drawn to the aged/prim look. It will be a wonderful addition to your new home.
