French Country Washboard

Do you have any old rustic items around your home?  This is such a fun way to add new life to an old object!  This would look so stinkin’ cute  in any room of the house.  This amazing piece of home decor would be so much fun to create.  If you don’t have an item around your home you can find these at garage sales, thrift stores, and estate sales.  You will be surprised what you can find.

French Country Washboard

This adorable washboard was created by Rhea Freitag.  Using the Graphic 45 French Country Collection gave it the rustic charm look, and was perfect for this project.

This creation also highlights some of the wonderful uses of the French Country cardstock flowers.  The flowers were placed strategically to help cover the imperfections of this washboard, it’s an easy fix.

This was a very well used washboard and the surfaces were quite warped.  Because of this Rhea had to embrace imperfection a bit.  Using a very wet glue application helped to get the paper to adhere.
