Years ago I was at a garage sale and bought up a bunch of older frames of varying size. They have hung around my house until I started this blog. Now I am always finding ideas to utilize them.
This one has a 15" x 30" opening.
So I spray painted it red and found this awesome black and white fabric I found at Wal-Mart for 2 dollars a yard. (can you say whoo to the hoo?)
Doesn't that look fabulous?
I am soooooo loving the look.
I wish it was a chair.
Oh, I haven't told you what I am making, have I? So sorry got so excited that I remembered to take a before shot. Ok I am making a necklace holder thingy for my daughter's Paris themed room.
So I cut a piece of foam core and covered it in the fabric of awshumness and held it fast with duct tape.
I then stapled it to the frame and screwed some cup hooks to the front. Now since I was too lazy to use wood, I had to come up with a way to secure the hooks. So I braved my evil hot glue gun and put a generous amount on the pointy end of the hooks. Let cool and voila' you got a cool looking organized.......
As I examined my handy work I saw that the staples came through a little. No worries I just simple hot glued on some red beads I had left over from a Christmas project.
I think it came out pretty awesome!! I love it and had a hard time giving it to my daughter.
Yes truly a masterpiece or reuse. The total cost of project was the fabric, everything else I had lying around.
So yay for garage sales, and inspiration. :)
See the beads, it made it even better.
YAY! for mistakes to get you to reinvent your original idea.
