It appeared that someone else tried to make it over but, gave up…. I loved the detail and knew I was up to the challenge !
I had my hubby cut out a piece of board the size of the top….I then got some batting and purchased some fabric for the top.
There were holes on the side – I think they were handles…I purchased wood scroll things at Lowes and painted them to match. I bought them for $7.00 – which cost me more then the holder !
The fabric was about $5.00 for a grand total of $16.00 !!! I think a got a great deal ! It is super heavy and has great lines….
It really looks good in my “studio” with everything else I have painted black. I need to clean up my crafts under my cutting table -
Remember this not so beautiful picture I got for $3.00 ? With a little spray paint and taking out the picture ….
I sewed and sewed and sewed little squares – this is a pretty large frame.
Here is a look of it on the wall to be used as a bulletin board. I also finally made over some little clipboards to match – I think I got them at Staples for around a buck….very cheap too !
I really owe my Met Monday and Thrify Treasures to all of you out in Blogland, who create and make over stuff – YOU are my inspiration !!!
