Redo of picture frames

Happy Rednesday!!

I sat down and decided to re-do these two frames that I had purchased at GW last week.  I loved the detail on both of them and wanted to start doing a "frame" wall as I've seen so many cute ones out there.  Here is what I started with.  Notice the detail on both of them.


I decided to paint them white and then was hoping it was keep the detail which it did so I was please. The bottom one doesn't show it very well in this picture but it was dirty and dungy and I wanted to make sure it was cleaned up and looked fresh as a daisy :) The paper I picked for behind doesn't show up in the picture but it has a bit of shimmer to it which is a little added detail to enjoy.  So after painting, paper and vinyl and a few embelishments, this is the start of my frame wall in our familyroom :)  I'm very happy with them and think they turned out very cute :)


I have also started working on this piece.  Stay tuned for that one :)  It's my first try but we'll see if I succeed or not.  lol


Linking to It's a very cherry world today.  Lots of cute red items for Rednesday!!  Enjoy!
Have a great day!

Very clever..sometimes we forget to see beyond what is in front of our eyes to what it "could" be. Thanks for sharing with us on Rednesday.
