|Picture frame before it's makeover|
First, I decided to paint the frame an ivory color and then distressed the corners and edges using a sandpaper sponge.
Next, I used my new Silhouette for the very first time!!
My first try didn't work out so well, but I got it on my second! So fun!!
Then, it was time to get the drill and put those handles on!
|Aren't these great! I found them at Target, 2 for $16!|
Enter wonderful husband! I needed his help to get these handles on, and he's much better with a drill than me!
And here's the finished project!!
If you're not feeling up to digging out the drill, a picture frame looks great as a tray without handles also. Check out this beautiful frame turned tray from Hey Now, Whoah Now!
I just used scrapbook paper for the background, but the ideas are limitless! I can't wait to do this project again using fabric and some doilies I found at a thrift store!
