Thrift Store Frame turned Burlap Beauty!
I found the coolest frame at goodwill a few weeks back:
I LOVE the details on the frame! So neat! I was not in love with the weird, goldish winged horse. I mean really....ugly!
I've been trying to figure out what do with it. Then it hit me. Of course! Spray Paint!
So, I gave it a good coat of black spray paint.
I have had some burlap that I have been wanting to do something with, so I thought that would make a good "background".
I took the back off the frame, and used it as a guide to cut my burlap. I then cut outside the line I drew, to give myself enough burlap to go over the edges. You want some extra fabric, so that it fits nice and tight in the frame.
I think it looks good so far:
Next, what should go inside? I have thought about it way too much! I have some extra damask fabric ( I LOVE DAMASK!) from doing my kitchen curtains. So, I carefully cut out a little damask swirly thing.
I gave the damask cut out a quick spray of spray on adhesive (I use 3M), and then positioned it inside the frame.
Here it is!
