Finishing an Unfinished Frame ~

When at Micheal's this last week I picked up this frame for $3.99.
 


 I painted on some Metallic Glaze,


Sanded the edges and used Distress Ink on the sides.


I printed out "Family" and the letter "P" for our last name and added a photo of the kiddos. 


But it still needed something...hum...ah yes, a fleur de lis to complete the look!


Now I must say, I had a million ideas on what to do with this and it was hard to choose one. So you might be seeing a similar frame transforming soon!
(thanks Jody for the beautiful flowers!)

That looks so great! I love the idea of of the initial and "family" rather than just filling it with 3 photos. And of course your paint job looks fantastic..

Awesome! I am seriously addicted to anything that in monogramed. I also would not have given that frame a second thought but I love what you did.
