31 Days: The Frame
I have two of my grandmother’s paintings framed and hung on the wall on the way to our den. I should say I DID. Zoe managed to knock one off the wall and break the frame into a gazillion pieces.
The frameless painting has lived on the counter for months because going to the store is hard, y’all.
I decided to pick up a new frame from the Hob Lob for $7.
I popped the back out and put the glass and the backing aside.
A 5×7 canvas fits inside perfectly, boom custom frame job. And by custom, I mean CHEAP.
I decided to take the hanging of the painting to the next level with my favorite invention of all time: the Command Strips. (The creepy cat is a nice touch.)
I mostly use the poster strips, you can hang just about anything with these bad boys. And! I had a 40% off coupon, score.
I had to pop the picture hanger off that was on the frame, but there were already nails in the wall from the original hanging of the paintings. I just hung the frames by the lip of the wood frame as back up and also used the stickers. They aren’t going anywhere, ZOE.
For 31 days, I’m tackling the Hot Mess. Read all about it here.
