So, last night, while watching Army Wives, I decided to work on some picture frames that I've had in my craft stash for about a month now - one for Nani and one for Nudgie. (Oh yeah, and to see what I did for Day #1, click here)
I found the frames on sale at Michael's. What I like about these frames is that they have the actual "leg" on the back of the frame and not that little peg of wood that always seems to pop out. (I really dislike those frames!)
I painted one purple (for Nani) and one yellow (for Nudgie). I learned that I should have done a base coat of white on the yellow frame first - and then painted it yellow. It never quite turned into the yellow that I wanted, and you could see the wood slightly seeping through. (And that was after three coats!)
I found the letter stickers in the dollar bins at Michael's and already had the felt for the fabric rosettes (my latest crafting obsession!)
I'm really happy with the finished project! And now I have to find the perfect pictures to put in them!!
