A couple weeks ago I wrote a post about using things you love to decorate your home. I mentioned my grandmother’s spoon that is on display in my kitchen. Today I’m going to show you how I made the beadboard shadowbox display that it hangs in. Shadowboxes are a great way to display sentimental items that might not happen to be flat!Kitchen Decor-- Beadboard Frame

Here’s how I made my BeadBoard Shadowbox Display:

I started with a shadow box that I picked up at the thrift store for a dollar.
beadbaord-shadowbox-diyI took out the insert and used it as a template to trace a piece of beadboard wallpaper.

All I had to do after that was paint the frame, tie a ribbon around the spoon, and attach it with a bit of hot glue.
My mom tells me that I must have inherited my love of cooking from my grandma. So every time I look at her spoon, I think of my grandma and the heritage she left me.

What treasured family items could you dig out of storage and start actually using in your home decor?
