~ Love This ~



I have a small collection of vintage aprons sitting in my kitchen drawer. I thought these were really cute ideas seeing they don't get out much. Clipping them up with wooden clothes pegs to make cute window treatments. Using them as chair skirts. Fun.

  1. What cute ideas! I love the way they look like little skirts on the backs of chairs:) I have a few myself. I put them on dress forms and hang them around the house. They are fun to decorate with.

  3. My grandmother use to whip up aprons like the ones showing... except for the full apron.. I remember she had those...My grandfather had a chef's apron, I bet he kept that from when he worked in my aunt's Chinese restaurant back in Chicago!.

  11. Oh, the chair idea is gorgeous! I have mine hanging on nails on the side of a kitchen cabinet - not the most innovative display of all time but I do love having them out of the drawer xx

  14. Cute...I love old aprons and even more I love old aprons hanging on a washing line with old wooden pegs...something so peaceful about that...not sure why..might have to do a little kitchen decorating, who says you can't have a washing line inside?

  22. I love pretty vintage aprons and using them as chair skirts particularly appeals to me. I need to get my aprons out of the drawer as I always forget to use them and end up wiping my hands on my skirt or a teatowel!
