Framed Magnet Boards
I finally decided what to do with a couple frames I picked up at the thrift store for $3.00 each. They are good size frames too - 14x18.
So did you see all that dust? Yep, that's how I bought them, not from sitting in my garage. After I gave them a good wipe down, I spray painted them with a coat of Rust-oleum's Heirloom White.
That big shadow is the basketball pole. Then I spray painted them with a couple coats of Rust-oleum Expresso.
They were looking much better now.
Then I very lightly sanded the decorative part on the frame so the white would show through.
I went to Home Depot to find some metal and came across this piece in the plumbing section for about $6.50.
I cut off the lip on the end and then cut it in half. It was the exact size I needed. I also had some material that I picked up from Joann's.
I just used a little hot glue to attach the fabric to the metal.
Then I put it in the frame.
Aren't they just lovely? I was so excited with how they turned out.
Wow me Wednesday
Love this. Couldn't be cuter! Question: how does one cut that metal. Does it take a special tool?ReplyDelete
very pretty. I always get dusty things at the Goodwill and I always feel icky afterwards handling them.ReplyDelete
That is a great project. I need to go buy some metal too and look for cheap frames. :) thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
