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!!

  1. 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.

  2. 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.
