Rustic wall art

Happy Tuesday!

The weekend went so fast I didn't get as much done as I had hoped but oh well.  It will be there tomorrow also right?  :)  I never get too upset as my family and their needs are first and foremost and then my "ME" time so here is what I was able to get done.

I had this frame and it was actually gorgeous but I wanted more of a rustic look so out came the paint.

I watered the paint down, went back over with regular paint and then took the sanding block too it. I put some scrap paper behind the glass to give it some character and  I like how it turned out.  I had found this rustic star over at Ben Franklin for $2 awhile ago and wondered what to do with it.  Well when surfing the different blogs, I saw a few that hung things from an empty frame.  Although this is a different frame, it's solid wood behind it so you can't have it empty so here is what I did with it :)



Have a fantastic day and enjoy each and every moment!
