Project Monday's are Back!!

I know it has been a while... what ever happened to sticking to a resolution anyway???

Well I am trying to be better, and I hope you like what you will be seeing in the next few weeks! I have many projects already done, just waiting to share, and plan on making many more!

So I bet you just really want the scoop on this one huh?

Okay so I saw a really cool idea in the NEW Stampin' Up! Catalog... Which I know you are all dying to see ( you can pre-order a catty from me- or get one free by booking a party!)
Okay so back to my Project... I went to the thrift store looking for a cool old frame... no luck, but found one the same size as a frame I had in the house, so I bought it and swapped them out. i bought a can of green spray pant and spent all day coating my very cool frame, cool huh?
I love this frame, but it was a bit gaudy! It has velvet on it! wasn't sure how that would end up looking after I painted it, but looks pretty good!
Then I took my husbands handy square and marked off where I was going to place my wire. I hammered in a ton of little wire nails and then wrapped ( well Mike did that part, lol) the wire all around the frame, making a grid.
I then added my Library clips (from Stampin' Up! of course) so I can hang stuff from it!
So here it is... I love how this looks on my Tangerine tango wall!
Oh and the color of the frame? It very closely resembles one of the new "In Colors"
can you guess which one it is?

  1. This is so AWESOME!!! I LOVE how it turned out!!

  2. wow this great, and what an awesome conversation piece! thanks for sharing!

  3. I'm guessing Wild Wasabi. Love how this turned out. Very eye catching with a practical use too. Might look cute with some ribbon knots tied on it here and there too.

  4. How cool Jennifer! I sooo want to try this project to!
