Pictures are worth a Thousand words

I had an extra frame that I really loved but the glass had fallen out and crashed into a million pieces. I had hung on to it because I loved the size of it and I really loved the texture and pattern of the frame. I also did not have the heart to toss it,  I know I could have got a replacement piece of glass, but I had this idea instead…

The frame was a brown color, to begin with and I failed to take a  picture before I painted it. Oops!!!. I bought a can of morning sky Chalky Finish spray paint by  Krylon and sprayed 2 coats on the frame and let it dry  over night, it turned out great!

I bought some twine at the local dollar store along with a bag of wooden clothes pin. This was very inexpensive and was just perfect for this project. I already had my trusty glue gun and plenty of glue sticks so I just went to work gluing the twine on the frame. The challenge was how tight or loose to get the twine. I started on the looser side and then I could always adjusted it later. Now you can you use wire if you prefer to, I liked the twine because it was easy to glue on and it was that different texture that I was searching for.  I also was not planning on hanging anything very heavy on these lines.

I hung a picture mount on the back of the frame so I was able to hang this up in my office. Yes I am still working on this bloody office lol. Some day it will be done!!


This is the finishing product. I decided to hang some old-time photos of the family. I thought it matched the motif and like I said in the beginning of this post…PICTURES ARE WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS…Thanks for stopping by!
