The frame is done, the tea-towel is in it, and it is up on the wall! After a setback last night (my darling hubby decided that a 24 x 36 inch piece of glass on a wall that kids bang against all day isn't such a good idea, and I reluctantly agreed) I had to find a new solution. Turns out that we had an old poster frame with a perspex sheet instead of glass that was exactly the same size so I just swapped them out. It has a few scratches on it, so I will eventually get another one, but there are tons of poster frames in the thrift stores for cheap cheap cheap so I'm not too worried. I love, and I mean LOVE it! The red was a good choice. I couldn't decide between hot pink, green, or red, but I think the red is perfect.
I know that the tea-towel isn't perfectly straight in the frame, but it's as good as it's going to get.The tea-towel was horribly shaped and I washed it and blocked it to dry as straight as I could, but that thing is just shaped funny. But hey, I figure it just adds to the quirkyness of it!
I also did another, smaller frame, for a little print of a painting done by an artist in Salt Lake City. I picked it up from the artist at the downtown Farmer's market when we lived there. I have a thing for all things pear, so I just had to have it. The green is much better than the brown, don't you think?! OK so I know the green is not everyone's taste, but it's mine!These were very cheap fixes. $8 for the large frame and $3 for the red can of spray paint. I already had the small frame, so it was $3 for the green paint, plus the can is almost full.
I think I have the spray paint fever now. I am looking at everything around me wondering hmmmm how would that look spray painted?!!
