I took this gold frame and took out the glass and the backer so I could paint it. I used my fav….heritage white and then wanted to put it back together but, the picture was glued to the backer of the frame. The picture was ugly. I didn’t want my new frame to have an ugly picture in it. SO….
I painted the backer in it. It was a pretty linen texture and was just water color so I took out my handy, dandy spray paint and painted it aqua with some left over paint I had. I let it dry then put the picture back together with the glass.
Isn’t the detail BEAUTIFUL!!
Now, because it has glass, it is a handy, dandy erase board! I will eventually put a picture in it and use it as a frame but, for now…until that perfect picture comes along needing an oval frame, it cane be an dry eraser board. The linen textured aqua color backer is just beautiful.
I planted my annual Easter grass this year and used one of the boxes I am using for my hutch(coming soon). I thought since the hutch wasn’t built yet, I could still use this box once more for a “pop” of spring with some fun wheat grass.
I also tried silk tie Easter eggs from the Martha Stewart site. You have to use 100% silk material and then boil them wrapped around the eggs. I blew out the inside of my eggs so I could keep them for next year as well. I used all blue colors so I could keep them as spring eggs as well. Fun and the colors variations are fun too!
So, I thought I would just share a few simple and fun spring projects that I’ve been up to…
