VINTAGE KEYS - disquising a thermostat

Do you see my thermostat? Would you if I had not mentioned it? I disguised it by working it into the
 wall art. I used similar shapes to help your eye pass right by the utility. You can also put a fancy
frame around the thermostat to help incorporate it but hanging things to close and right over top of it
 can cause it not to read the room's temperature right. I know cause I did it before.
I used fancy little frames I picked up at yard sales and second hand stores. They have no glass
 and I painted them white. I cut heavy brown cardboard to fit inside the frames, and hot glued the
keys to the cardboard.
I usually have some painted frames listed for sale if you are local and wanting to do this yourself.

  1. I am glad you mentioned that about the thermostat. I was planning to covering ours, now I won't for sure.

  2. Wow, I missed it. Such a clever girl.

  3. Great idea to draw attention away from the dreaded but needed thermostat.
