366 Days of Photos

12 August 2012

Today I got creative with DIY. I’ve had these battered frames lying around for years – past the stage of re-selling, so I decided to give one of them a new lease of life for my instant photos…

The frame – Before

The colour – ‘Minted’

    An hour or so sanding, painting, re-sanding, hammering, pegging and et voila!

I’m still trying to find a way to tie the knots in a way that the string stays straight rather than bending, but all in all I’m really happy with it, thats one very productive Sunday for me!

    Very well done. Love the color too. I’ve thought about making a hanging gallery like that on a wall without any frame.
