Framed

Indecision was the theme this weekend. It was half rainy & cold, half sunny & springy. Half productive, half lazy. Halfway started the kitchen backsplash. Half elated (found dining room chairs!), half raging annoyed (had to pass on them, see future post).

I did however get around to a small project that I've had on my long list for a while. If you're like me, you made spaghetti and meatballs on Saturday while the Husband was away, just so you had an excuse to eat a whole loaf of garlic bread by myself....I mean, by yourself you probably have an assortment of old picture frames stashed somewhere, unused and collecting quite the impressive layer of dust.

After wiping them down, I removed the glass/back from the frames (free), spraypainted them both white (Rustoleum satin finish: $4), attached new hooks onto the back of the frames, since the old ones were attached to the cardboard backing (Michael's: $1.99) and hung them like so. I think I'm quite happy with how they look! I'll have to dig around and see if there's another larger, thinner frame to add to make this set a trio (more visual interest never hurt anyone), but this is good for now.

Other than fielding questions from Mr. FC, it was so easy and took all of 2 hours, drying time included ("Why are they empty? Did we run out of pictures? Here, how 'bout this one of me in waders, catching a huge salmon on my fly-fishing trip last summer....").

P.S. Forgive me for my reading material.....instead of displaying pretty design books, I'm that girl who's kind of re-reading the last 2 Harry Potter books in preparation for the next movie this summer.

P.P.S . I may or may not have just finished re-reading the Twilight books.........I also may or may not think that the world's currently divided into: wizards, vampires, and real people, in that order. ------> Jill J said I also forgot about the elves. How could I forget about the elves?! Thanks, Jill. =]
