I see an asortment of these silver chafing dish holders all the time at second hand stores and honestly it's been driving me crazy trying to figure out what I can use them for - they usually have such great features and a beautiful patina. However the lid or glass dish insert is almost always missing.
Well, it finally came to me...if you turn it upside down... and look at the feet, they look like....
HOOKS! Yes! HOOKS!
Now - what do I want to hang on the hook? Hmm...maybe some of the aprons I've been collecting due the fact that I've been inspired by this fantastic little magazine from Stampington and Co. called Apronology!
"The premier issue of apron•ology shows off accessorizing with a twist — or rather a tie. This new publication flirts with the many uses and looks of the apron. While you may notice your grandmother’s vintage linens, handkerchiefs or embroidery in these pages, your breath will also be taken away by looks with leather, bright colors, rhinestones, and tulle. The contemporary apron is hot and can do more than keep you clean. These beautiful creations are fit to be worn in the kitchen or on the runway. Pick up a copy to create your own timeless and personal piece of fashion."
OK now I have a plan...
So...I found a nice little piece of lumber with routered edges and gave it a couple of coats of ASCP Provence.
Printed out the title of my new little reading addiction.. IN MIRROR IMAGE.
Used the Mod Podge method to transfer it to the board...
Then I did a little distressing, and some waxing and then added the beautiful little feet!
One on each side....I'm seriously looooving these little shiny pieces of art!!
Perfect! These apron hangers will be available in my booth along Vintage Alley at the Fraser Valley Women's Show!
Does anyone else have an apron fetish?
How do you display yours?
