Think Twice Before Using This Fixer Upper-Inspired Decor In
Your Home
By KRISTY BOWEN recently recounted some missteps in HGTV stars Chip and Joanna Gaines’ history, including when Joanna paired an antique window frame with hanging mason jars and birds.
While salvaged frames have emerged as a popular and enduring design element, Gaines' assemblage tips a bit too far into a variety of shabby chic that has seen better days.
Although Joanna’s decor screams an aesthetic that may be past its prime, you can stylishly use a salvaged frame in modern rooms by letting it shine without too much adornment.
If you want to use your window in a functional way to avoid the frivolous feel of Gaines' window mistake, try backing it with chicken wire to create a perfect spot to tuck photos.
