Another reclaimed wood project.......

I have another one to share. If you guys remember awhile back, Rhett was able to secure some wood from a  fence being torn down around our neighborhood. So......needless to say, we have LOTS of wood, but we actually have LOTS of ideas of what to do with it! Mainly, or my biggest to do something like this to my craft room wall...of course, my wood will not be white. :) Can't wait to do it!

So......I saw this frame in a gift shop awhile back and took a picture of it b/c I KNEW I wanted to try and copy it.

WAY TOO expensive for me and I knew I had those frames Rhett made for me awhile, I grabbed one of the frames Rhett made for me, used a little wood glue and adhered my Hobby Lobby paper mache' cross to the corner.

After it was dry, I found some cheap paint I bought on the 50 cents wrong color rack at Lowe's or Home Depot and painted it. It was a grayish color which I thought would be perfect!

I didn't get a picture, but I added some glaze and then wiped some off with a damp rag.....perfect!

Oh I know what I could add that would be just the right touch. I had a picture insert that had four openings with four pictures of Preston as a baby! The frame/glass had broken awhile back. I didn't take a picture, but I turned the frame over and then nailed the picture in.........I LOOVVEE IT!!!

It looks pretty close to the first one, huh? :) I guarantee you it cost less!!!
