Recycled Scrap Metal Art

One of the benefits of frugal home decor is that you can use items that would otherwise end up in a landfill and make something beautiful out of them!

These pieces of salvaged metal hang over the television console in our family room, helping to turn a simple TV stand into the focal point of the room.

The arches were purchased at our local flea market and were painted white, but the paint has worn off with age and the metal is partly rusted.

We used a wire brush to clean off as much of the rust and debris as possible and then we sprayed both pieces with a sealant.

We also have a salvaged metal star, purchased at a scrap metal shop. Our refinished star is featured in the showcase over at SimpleNest.
