Antique Upcycle

Let me premise this post by saying that the term "Upcycle" is meant to convey the concept of taking something and dressing it up a bit. It's trendy, I know. This is probably the only time I'll ever use the word...

My two current projects involve personalizing a washboard (which will serve as a magnet board) and creating Steve's cufflinks from old typewriter keys:
My logo needs some TLC, but it's getting there. I was going to create some kind of welcome message for it... it could also be the dessert table sign.

Paloma's Nest has wonderful monogram cufflinks. Alas, my DIY mantra (and restricted budget) keep me from loading up on Paloma goodies.
