You may have noticed this turquoise frame display piece I used at my craft show to display some hair pieces.......
We also used it at my Niece's Mad Tea Party to display photos of her....
I came across pictures I took of the process to make this and thought I would share them today.
I am in love with this simple little piece and even more in love with the fact that it only cost $2 - below is what the frame looked like when I bought it at a yard sale.
I went over the whole thing with a couple coats of craft paint I had on hand.
Then to distress it a little I sanded some edges here and there and rubbed some Valspar Antiquing Glaze in a few spots and let it sit for a few seconds then rubbed it back off, leaving just a little behind. You can find the glaze at Lowes.
My husband stapled chicken wire onto the back of the frame and then I stapled some fabric behind the wire.
I just love it and when I am not using it at craft shows or parties I have it hanging in my studio and clip random this and that type things on it (magazine clippings, etc).
I have acquired a really large ornate gold frame that I'm thinking about doing something similar with, but haven't decided for sure.
I also wanted to share some pics of a few things I've added to the shop
I hope you have a great week!
