My Newest Creation!

A New Project
I have all these frames and I needed a new project.
I knew some would be chalk boards, 
but these were going to be something different!

Of course these are for photos, 
but I used them to display some vintage jewelry!

I apologize for the photos, I can't wait to get a new camera : (

I picked two of these up at a tag sale, for cheap $
They were on the gold-ish side, 
so I dry brushed them with white paint.

I first cut a piece of thin plywood to size, these were 11x14.  
I needed to shave a little off because my materials 
wouldn't fit once I put it back in the frame. 
(Make sure you leave a little room for materials, 
but not too much, you want things to be snug)

I cut a piece of batting and some fabric about an extra 
1/2 inch all away around, I did the same with the fencing. 
Everything was held into place once 
I bent the edges of the fencing around the board.

Once it was in the frame, I stapled the board to the frame in a 
few spots (around the back), just to make sure it stays put! 

Then I cut a piece of pretty wallpaper from one of my wallpaper 
sample books and glued it to the back (with a glue stick)!

I found these cute little clothes pins to attach the photos with!

Here's the other one I did, again the picture isn't great.
I have already sold them both, so I guess they are a success!
Time to make some more!

Thanks for checking it out!


  1. Love those memo boards or whatever you call them! I want to have a gigantic one!! If no one buys the huge mirror in your store, the one in the corner, then maybe you can do a wire memo board on that frame!! Wouldn't that be a cool thing to have in a hallway or a home office?

  2. Wonderful, what a blog it is! This website provides helpful information to us, keep it up.

  3. I have been surfing online more than three hours today,
    yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It's pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.

  5. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her
    ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off
    topic but I had to tell someone!
