I have a couple of new addictions. One is Pinterest and one is Young House Love. Isn't it fun when your worlds collide? YHL announced they were holding another Pinterest challenge and I decided to join in. I have a spotty history with Pinterest. I am very good at pinning things and very bad at actually making them or making them well. Anyone remember the glitter Xmas ornaments or the paint chip coasters? The ornaments were good but the coasters...not so much.
Basically, the point of the challenge is to take something you pinned on Pinterest and interpret it for yourself. I found this frame I had pinned from TheHouse Of Smiths blog. I loved the color and the shapes and I figured I could make this quite easily.
I gathered up my coupons and went to the craft store where I bought 2 wooden mirror frames and brought them home. I spray painted them white and waited for them to dry. I have pictures of all of this but Blogger doesn't want to let me post them. I"m sure you can imagine it because its pretty self explanatory.
I also knew I would have to buy my design. A more talented person would have just painted one onto the frames but thats not me. I discovered all sorts of possibilities in the scrap booking aisles where I don't usually hang out. I bought a few options but ended up going with these felt stickers in green and black. I wanted red but they didn't have them in a design I liked.
Here are the finished products. I decided to go horizontal instead of vertical with the stripes but I can hang them either way once I find a spot for them. The good thing about these is that they are adjustable because I can see the top green stripe needs some help.
