Thrifted Frame Project

I hosted our monthly Omaha Etsy meeting at my home this past Saturday. I didn't work on a project because I had a two-year-old "helper" that needed monitoring. I was so inspired by how much everybody else accomplished at the meeting that, on Monday, I actually started AND finished a project I've been wanting to make for over four years now. I had purchased a framed mirror and picture at Goodwill ($4.99) with plans to repaint it and replace the ugly apple picture with a wedding photo. I painted the frame black and distressed the edges. I cropped and matted one of our black and white wedding pics and stamped "forever" under the photo. I was going to do something more elaborate but decided that simple was probably better. I love the way it turned out.

Here's a close-up of the picture part of the frame. I have such a goofy expression on my face because my mouth is full of wedding cake!
