My Recycled Antlers and Dining Room Part 1

Guten Tag! How are ya'll doin'!? I decided I wanted to re-purpose my antlers (the ones I previously used for a jewelry rack) and place them around my "unique" picture that I adore so much! That picture is an awesome multimedia piece that was done by a Polish artist (and purchased at Homegoods. Whoop whoop!). If you didn't know this about me already, I like quirky things in my home. 

So here is what my antlers looked like before. I loved them, but it was time for a change:
Below is a picture of the antlers from Ballard Designs (that cost $50+ a piece). Mine were free, but you can purchase tons of these on Etsy or Ebay all day long for just a couple bucks a pop and paint them yourselves.

I painted my antlers with a basic Krylon white-gloss spray paint to make them look a little more modern. 
I then hammered these little guys into the wall and it finished off that corner of my dining room. 
It's just what the area above our wine cabinet needed. My husband digs the antlers too.


During the Christmas season, I will switch the picture out for something more festive and these antlers will look great as holiday decor.



I hope you all are having a lovely start to the new week and I look forward to showing you the redo of my upstairs hall. Here is a peak!
Are you working on any antler-related projects?

Until next time...
