I've had a heap of heavy wooden frames I bort years ago just sitting packed away in a container. I had them on my wall for some time but after a few years I took them down as I like to constantly change the feel of my place. I was going through this box a few days ago and thought...hmmmmmm, they are very dark stained wood, and Im not too sure if i like the colour of them anymore *blush*
SO, I thought I would breath new life into them and give my home a few new wall hangings. Give my walls a beath of new life. As you can see from the pics I went a little crazy. LOL
Here is a before pic of the frames...
Just before their makeover.
I painted them white with an undercoat paint. once dried I lightly sanded the edges to get that vintage look.
I then printed out some awesome pics from The graphics fairy . I spent hours trolling thru amazing clipart that was on this site. I printed out a few pics I realy liked and had a bit of a play.
I relised printing them out on plain paper was, just a bit too plain. So I used an old french bible that i found at a second hand store for $2 and printed each of the pics onto a page from the bible. It was very different.
I was quite happy with the end result.
This was what the end result was...
|The one above with the little sparrow is my absolute fav!|
Im now tempted to do a frame collage on one of my walls as they all look so great bunched together...hmmmmm, another thought for another day....
