I need a little help. I saw these ADORABLE frames on a blog a couple of weeks ago. The girl gave a tutorial on how she did them and I just recreated them in my own way. I want to give her a shout out and some credit, but I have no idea where I saw it. Anyone know?
FABRIC FLOWER WOOD FRAMES
March 3, 2011 By 36 Comments
These were so fun to make and will definitely be a staple at CI. My husband just built a new deck and we had a huge 10×12 piece of lumber left. Lumber numbers always confuse me. If it’s a 10×12 that means it really measures 9 1/4. Why? I don’t have a clue…But anyway when I cut mine the ACTUAL size was 9 1/4 x 6 1/4. It gave me a lot of frames. I used Benjamin Moore’s Elmira white, one of my all time favorite whites. It only took one coat because I used Behr Paint with primer. SHH…don’t tell Benjie. Home Depot matched it for me.
I found these old wooden finials at an Estate sale months ago and just knew I needed them for something. Well these are the something! I wish I had more! The big box stores don’t have any like these. These are just cool and vintage. I only had 4….bummer.
After these four sell, I’ll just have to paint new ones.
If any of you see any old wooden ones while out thrifting, think of me!!
I found a rose tutorial on Rhonna Farner’s blog from the House of 3.
They were super easy to make and I used left over burlap and linen scraps from my pillows.
I hot glued the little clothes pins on and painted them the same white. And Voila….a unique picture frame fit for any occasion.
UPDATE: YAY!!! Thanks girls for letting me know where I saw these! I am so glad I asked. I new someone had to have seen them!
It was Shanty 2 Chic! AWESOME blog. You must check them out…..
