From beautiful to ELEGANT!


Now don't get me wrong, I really love this project I made last year.  I think it just needed a little more to it and I could never figure it out what?!   Last year I posted about this project on my Top 5 handmade crafts, it was #4.  It gives a little more background into why I made it in the first place! 
  • I used some plywood I bought from Home Depot for .51 cents! 
  • Wrapped the fabric (bought at Jo Ann's) around the front and hot glued it in back! 
  • Then found a wooden letter for our last name, painted it black, and sanded the edges for a distressed look.  I also hot glued the letter and the metal sheet to the fabric, it seems to hold just fine.  It was a simple DIY project that came together perfectly! 


 

I was organizing my room a couple weeks ago and found this awesome frame that I have never used.  Then it just came together! 



You know from previous projects that black spray paint is a must for me.  I know I should really try some other colors in my home, but black just fits my style!  It is such an elegant color and that is why painting this frame black made this project for me.  The plywood I used for the original project didn't fit the frame, so I just used the board that was already in the frame and re-glued the fabric to it! 



What do you think?  I think the frame fits it perfect!  Have a wonderful weekend ladies!

I love "N" for obvious reasons. And damask. And black and white.

Swoon...
