This past Thursday I had some free time between errands so I was able to visit some of my favorite stores. I went by Goodwill, Waterfront Mission, and a new Habitat for Humanity store. After browsing and searching through items I was able to find a few frames that I saw potential in.
After a trip to walmart for some spraypaint, and digging up my old scrapbooking cardstock I was able to begin my next project: Ringl Wall Decor. Because I am a huge fan of the color blue my mom helped me decide on a tone that wasn’t screaming “the beach” or “baby boy’s first room”. Half an hour later I was throwing down newspaper and trying out Global Blue. Thankfully Florida has let up on the humidity this week so they dried within 20 minutes and I was able to move indoors for step 2: matting the frame. Around this time Stephen got home, finding all my supplies spread across the living room floor :) He got comfy on the couch and let me bug him with my ‘should I use this light cream color or white’ questions (which he loooves, hah). A few hours later, and several online episodes of ‘The Big Bang Theory’ for Stephen, I completed DIY Project #2.
Now, here is a step-by-step visual of how it went down:
Step 3: Begin matting frames w/ color(s) of choice, and securing photos into place
(the grin, as shown, can occur when things are going well. however, frustration can happen so just think of something funny or go grab a snack and that’ll cheer ya right up!)
…keep going until you have completed all your frames, so you can say something like ‘dang, I’m awesome’ or ‘look important persons name, after a year and a half of marriage I finally have some of our wedding pictures framed’
Well there ya have it, completed DIY Project #2. If you have any ideas on what I should do next drop me a comment, I’m looking for ideas to keep me busy and hobby-focused :)
To finish I will provide a tip for anyone out there that wants to try something like this for themself. I was a lucky lady that Stephen let me spring for the good stuff instead of double-sided tape:
This stuff is great!!
