Transformed :: Better Off Shed

With the taste of Spring in the air, I (Claiream finding virtually every excuse possible to escape to the great outdoors. Those closest to me have always known that I’m a total nature nerd, but by now you may have all picked up on my tendency to give outdoor elements a makeover and then bring them indoors. Since I’m a sucker for deer sheds (did you happen to spot a gilded one on my great wall?), I’ve been dying to think up the right project to incorporate them into my home. Absolutely cruelty-free, sheds add such a fabulous touch to any space, and just browsing through the inspirational images I’ve found has me eager to get started… but first I’d love to hear your creative opinions on these 3 versions: How would you like to see my deer sheds transformed? Pitch in your thoughts and ideas, and stay tuned for the reveal with instructions in two weeks!

    I also long for the outdoors at the hint of even a few degrees increasing on the thermometer.

    Though I’ve never been an antler enthusiast, I love the teal accent on that first piece! It makes it quite a bit more attractive!

    Love them all! I have elk sheds in my house and can tell you from experience (and lots of trial and error) that it is near impossible to mount sheds like image 1…even if you had a matching set. That being said, I love the drama of a dark antler and would do that in some other way, perhaps just as decor instead of attempting for functional.

      Haha, a bathroom towel holder is a GREAT idea! Definitely one I’m considering. Thanks, Eve!

    I have a matching pair too and have been thinking about what to do with them. I’d love to see what you end up doing!

    I do like the idea of the bathroom towel hook, though! Too funny!

    Help! I have a couple of sheds that I’m wanting to use in my home but the internet is proving to be no help in telling me how to mount them individually without driving a screw through the front! How did you do it??
