Have y'all noticed that I am the world's worst at putting things off and not finishing projects in a timely manner??? Well, if not...it's true....crown me Miss Procrastination 2010. This little project is one that I've had on the backburner for a couple months now....half finished. I covered these thrift store canvases back when I made over the infamous roadkill rescue headboard. They have been sitting around waiting to get all gussied up. I had no idea what to do with them, so I put them away and waited for some inspriration.
And 2 months later...it struck. I decided to use them as picture frames. I had these two adorable 8 x 10's printed recently, but couldn't decide where to put them. Again with the sitting around waiting for inspiration to strike. I know, I know....blah, blah, blah!
I used double stick tape to attach the picture to the fabric. Then I strung a drapery clip onto a ribbon and tacked it to the top of the frame with an upholstery tack. On one I clipped a big silk daisy, an acrylic scrapbook initial, and a teeny tiny picture of my sweet girl's hand on the day she was blessed! The other frame I kept simple with just an initial. I wanted the focus to be on those gorgeous, amazing eyes of my baby girl.
I have one hanging on either side of the bed. My girls absolutely LOVE having their very own pictures in here. They were so excited when I asked if I should hang them in their room.
This room is slowly coming together...kinda like the master bedroom. Yes.....it is still in progress too. Hmmmmm, maybe I should only start one project at a time. HA..... that's a good one!
I adore this itsy bitsy little picture of a brand new baby hand. I think that bracelet would fit on her thumb nowadays! So not fair that they have to grow up. This child told me just today that she DID NOT want to grow up. She liked being three and didn't want to be 4 anymore! Well, ok. I'll get right on that.
The inspriration for these frames came from this memo board, or my version of it anyway. I made it back when there was only one girl and she ruled the roost and the decor. Can you tell? This was a fun project and super easy. I love that it is not your typical memo board. It's a little out there, a bit quirky, and a lot cute!
