Vintage Salt & Pepper Shakers

by - June 14, 2012

We found these vintage salt & pepper shakers at a garage sale a few months ago.  They are silver-plated and screw off to reveal a glass holder for both the salt and pepper.  Really unique.  I wanted to give them a Frenchy makeover:

First I added my favorite vintage lace with some hot glue.  Then I added the metal picture holders to each one.  I was thrilled that they actually fit into the existing holes.
I used some distressed French book paper underneath the lace.  I also added some faux pearl embellishments and tea-stained seam binding.
I added the religious medal to one and the je t'aime notecard to the other.
I love the shabby French feel of them!
