How did I get it to look so old? Dad attempted to remove the paint and didn't finish the job. I also started to remove the paint and realized he had already started. I could see that it was looking very old and weathered so we stopped right there. The old layers of paint were showing through. I basically just got lucky. The back of the frame looks like brand new wood!
I got the idea from pg 98 of Stampin' Up!'s 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalog. They had taken a frame, added wire and hung projects on it for display. So while helping my friend Anna find good frames I realized that I had the perfect frame for this project! Since I no longer had a plan for this frame, here it is.This is essentially what it will look like but with stamped projects clipped to the wire.
Both of these projects were completed with stuff I already had. YAY!
