Not long after dad passed away I won this print from Hope Ink.
It was one of dad's favorite verses.
I wanted to hang it over my bed.
I have a million and a half frames in my basement, none of them are for a picture that is 12x12.
I have been thinking about building my own frame, but I was too much of a scaredy cat.
Then when mom and I made the frame for her bathroom mirror gave me a little more confidence.
It still took me a couple of months to put my big girl panties on and just do it.
And here she is.
The tutorial will come later this week.
But after making it, I realized that it still too small to go above our bed. Doh!
Back to the basement I went and found this bad boy.
I don't know the exact size, but it is almost to my shoulders.
I am 5'2" so all you math experts...what does that make it?
I kind of went with the same techique as with the frames above my guest bed and painted it.
Then wiped on and wiped off glaze.
And upstairs I went to hang up these babies above the bed.
And found out that our stud finder was broken.
It's like swiss cheese for the walls.
Luckily, since I was not in the mood to spackle all that, the frame covered up all those holes.
Our bedroom is looking a little less like a plain gray box.
One day I will make one of those headboard thingys.
And get some pretty pillows.
It is all on my wish list.
Along with a finished basement, it will all come in due time.
Until then I will enjoy my two for one frame job.
Also, have you all checked out my new blog design?
Kassie from designs by Kassie made it for me!
