I have a few projects that I’ve done in the past and never posted about them, mainly because I didn’t have a good platform to share the steps. So in the next few weeks I’ll be sharing those projects! I do have to warn you, however, that this was before I had a DSLR or a good camera phone, so the pictures aren’t the best quality. With that being said, I still think these projects are worth sharing!
I found this wood frame at a rummage sale for $5.
I was really excited to find it because I had never seen anything like it! All the thinks I was thinking, what to do with all that extra room around the frame!? I thought a few thoughts, one was that this would be so great to use as a wedding gift, you know, where people write their well wishes and you put your wedding picture in the middle? That was my initial idea for this frame, but I didn’t have any friends getting married any time soon, and so that thought passed.
Anyway, I had this bible verse in my head for a few days: Where you stay, I will stay. It’s from Ruth. I thought it would be so adorable to have that bible verse along with a picture of a dog. It’s so fitting, right?
This was a really quick project, it probably only took me 20 minutes at the most.
My choice of paint was Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint in Luckett’s Green
I loved working with this milk paint. there was a time when that’s all I used. But it gets expensive, so I only use it on smaller projects now.
and yes, I did use a twig to stir my paint. You gotta do what you gotta do!
Paint it on real nice and good like.
I used a permanent marker to write the text, but nowadays they have those fancy acrylic paint sharpies. This worked just fine for me.
Here she is with my pup Lucinda!
And here she is at the craft show. I sold her that day, kinda regretting it now.
Have you found any frames with ‘good bones’ lately?
