I loved these vintage buttons and thought they were the detailed needed for this project

I originally saw this idea on the Trash to Treasure segment of Decorating Cents on HGTV and loved it.  Sue also did a clever variation.  I kept mine simple by adding vintage buttons and some funky crystals.  I love that the classy crystals don't go with the industrial pipes and are totally unexpected.  They are magnets so you can easily pull them off if you want a more casual look.
