From Goodwill to Gorgeous

November 2, 2010
Are you ready for another Goodwill score!?
Check out the pictures that I came across! Look at those amazing frames! Lets tear them apart!

To start we disassemble! Then the frames go off to the garage for… white spray paint of course!

While the paint is drying, lets take a look at the pictures… they were not in the best of shape and really don’t go with my decorating scheme… so lets grab some supplies!

First, use your spray adhesive to adhere the fabric to the pictures. I let it dry for a minute or so before sticking together… it seems to make it a little more “tacky” and you get a better hold. Then trim about an inch all the way around.

Then I clipped the corners, sprayed the edges of the pictures and folded the material around the backside.

For the corners, I folded them together to form a little dog ear.

Next, I clipped off the dog ears.

This creates a nice clean look on the back… call it the perfectionist in me!

Here are the finished pictures! Now lets go get the pretty white frames!

Oh, now don’t they look just scrumptious! What to do with them… hmmm… well being a newlywed, I have grown fond of the letter “H” – so that would be a good start for one!

A bright white H sure does the trick! Held in place with a little hot glue (so I can change it later if I’d like)… Love It!

Maybe we will see the second frame sometime in the future… for now, it will go with the other frames that have yet to find a home in this house!
