After two fun filled trips to beach, which included sea water stew and some frolicking in the waves the kids were completely pooped and promptly fell asleep soon as their heads hit their pillows.
Hubster retreated to bed with a migraine and I was left all alone.
A whole entire evening to me!
If I knew before hand I would have a few hours all to myself I would have planned better, but alas, I have young children therefore planning goes completely out the window.
Fortunately I always seem to have a dozen or so projects on the go.
I decided to finally finish of decorating some frames I’ve had laying around for yonks.
These beauties I did the other week.
Simple Ikea wood frames I painted and sprinkled glitter inside. Such a quick, simple and easy make, can’t believe that I hadn’t done this before!
The next frame I had somehow managed to smash the glass, duh!
Rather than just toss the frame in the bin I decided to try something a little different.
After painting the frame I dug out some chalk board fabric, amazing stuff this, and using my trusty staple gun I attached a piece of chalk fabric to the back of the frame.
Using some sticky letters and a doodad I added some decoration to the frame
I then cured the chalk fabric, which really just means I used a piece of chalk to go over the fabric, this helps prevent any text or image remaining too prominent even after rubbing it out.
After adding some text, which is easily changeable, it’s already to go up on a wall.
The last frame I jazzed up is another which has no glass, what is it with me and glass!?
This time I decided to use fabric to decorate the frame.
How to cover a picture frame in fabric
Use a staple gun to attach the fabric to the back of the frame, pull the fabric tight before securing with staples. Glue or even double sided tape work just as effectively as a staple gun!
These frames have made a great addition to my living room wall, I know there is a total lack of symmetry, but I’m not a symmetry kinda gal!
