The other day, while out antique shopping I found this old wooden star. It was a dark brown natural wood. I decided to bring it home and paint it white and dress it up with some shabby chic fabric strips. Now, it is what I call my "prairie star".
(Please excuse the black mark showing up on the wall in this picture. It is a defect with my camera. My wall does not have a black mark on it.)
Here is a close-up of the star.
I hung it on the wall above my chair in place of the picture that was here. It moved to another location which I will share with you later.
Before I added the fabric, my husband thought I was hanging a Jewish star on the wall. Isn't he a funny guy? And then my 13 yr old chimed in with it too. Living with so many males in the house is never a dull day!
I'm happy with it, no matter what they think. I've seen many versions of this star before. Some are made out of yardsticks and some are left natural and plain. Mine has a shabby chic look to it so it fits in with my white slipcovers and feminine decor.
Do you have any stars in your home?
Thanks for stopping by.
