Framing Vintage Scarves

Now that the One Room Challenge is over, I am turning my attention back to my home office makeover. One project I have planned is a gallery wall. I have in mind framing a vintage scarf as the largest piece and focal point. Perhaps you already have a lovely vintage scarf you would like to frame - Hermes and Pucci are classics. A very well priced and readily available alternative on Etsy and eBay are vintage Vera scarves. You can find these in hundreds of beautiful designs and every color. I will be on the hunt for one this week, and will post my progress as well as a tutorial on DIY framing. For more inspiration, check out my new Pinterest board here on "Framing Vintage Scarves." You can follow all my Pinterest boards here.

I also have a guest post today on The Glam Pad where I am continuing my virtual makeover of The Chinese Village House. Today I redo the home office.

These framed scarves are examples to inspire me and perhaps you.

  2. I collect vintage Vera scarves. I have a great source in Old Town Fredericksburg.

  3. The first one and the last one are beyond stunning!

  4. timely post!
    i have a client that has a walk in closet filled, really filled with hermes boxes. she must have 200+ scarves alone. i am trying to talk her into framing some, so far resistance. i am forwarding this post!

  5. Great idea. One of the other dealers where I have my booth has a gorgeous vintage framed scarf for sale. Wish I had the right place for it - its stunning!

  6. I've got a framed scarf. It was surprisingly frustrating to get it tight in the frame, but I imagine that was because it's pure silk and rather slippy. A friend of mine framed a pair of stacked tapestry-like place mats and they look fantastic.
