current obsession: clothespins
July 25, 2011 § Leave a comment
on a recent shopping trip to a new favorite shop called the farmer’s wife we spotted the most perfectly worn, vintage looking clothespins. unfortunately as we tried to purchase said clothespins we were informed they were only sold with the three hundred-dollar monstrosity of a birdcage they were attached to. oh. plan b.
instead we went on a mission to create our own aged clothespins, and found that for the bargain price of $2.99 target superstore will sell you fifty quality crafted wooden clothespins (found in the laundry aisle). then simply paint, and/or decorate, in any color you wish and voila. clothespins for every occasion.
we have been using them for just about everything you can think of: hanging pictures, kitchen tasks, air drying laundry, and the list goes on. here’s a fun DIY how to, too.
