Hang Broken Furniture on the Tree? Why Not?!?!

Sounds heavy, doesn’t it?  In all actuality, it’s not entire pieces of furniture that Debi from Debi’s Design Diary is hanging on her tree–she’s hanging pieces of furniture.  And boy, do they look great!

Debi realized that many of the broken off feet, bedposts, and knobs she’d collected over the years were shaped much like the vintage glass Christmas ornaments that she loves.  She used CeCe Caldwell chalk paint and wax to spiff up a few from her collection.  The addition of ribbon on top allows them to be hung on the tree.  They are seriously beautiful.
