I am linking up with Katie @ Keep Calm & Carry On and Steph @ Beautiful Mess for "Saw it, Pinned it, Did it".
I saw an awesome DIY Chevron/Monogram/Frame piece on Pinterest from "The Baeza Blog" and had to have it in our new house for our entry-way wall. And while the purpose of the post was actually to talk about how the blogger made the cool distressed frame, I just used her design idea.
(I actually had to get two different colors of spray paint because I painted my frame too).
1. First you spray paint the frame, Unless you found a frame the exact bright color you wanted.
|I chose a bright apple green for mine.|
2. Spray paint your paper mache letter. I got the paper mache letter instead of the wooden letter because they are more lightweight so I didn't think it would be as hard to make it stay on the glass.
3. Cover the little cardboard piece that you find in your frame in the fabric of your choice. You could probably use scrapbook paper too, I just happened to have this great chevron fabric already that I plan on using for my bedroom throw pillows.
|cut around your cardboard leaving at least an inch or an inch and a half so you can wrap your piece of cardboard|
|secure fabric with packing tape (or hot glue..)|
|put wrapped fabric back into frame.|
4. Hot glue your letter to the glass of your frame. Now, you could probably not put the glass back in and just leave the fabric. However, the letter might be a little heavy for the fabric to hold so it may sag, I would definitely suggest leaving the glass pane in.
So simple. I can't wait to get into the new house and hang it!
