Happy Thursday! Once again, I’ve joined up with my crafty friends from the Creative Craft Blog Group {CCBG} to bring you our weekly Link Party CCBG#20. You can linkup  any of your crafty projects below….after you read all about my Vintage Yardstick Picture Frame….of course.

Vintage Yardstick Picture Frame Supplies

Yes, I am known for scouring flea markets and collecting “stuff”. I have amassed collections of old chairs, chipped up doors, window frames and I certainly can’t pass up a vintage yardstick. I love the faded, worn colors and the typography of the various advertising on a vintage yardstick.

Supplies and assembly of Vintage Yardstick Picture Frame

This vintage yardstick picture frame was a quick and easy project that has added some character and color to the gallery wall I am slowly building up in my Modern Farmhouse Kitchen.

I pulled this well loved picture frame from one of my other collections and had my husband cut the yardsticks 14 inches long. He stapled each end into the lip of the frame and added some screws to hold the letter “B” in the center of the frame. Within 15 minutes this vintage yardstick picture frame was hanging up on the kitchen gallery wall.

I am absolutely in love with this Wallpapered Lampshade submitted by Pillar Box Blue.  Not only is this a clever way to match your lampshades to your décor but she provides an easy to follow tutorial. Thanks for the inspiration Claire.

    How pretty! Instead of having those old yardsticks tucked away somewhere, they’re front and center and everyone can enjoy the color and the old timeyness (yes that’s a word).
