Wire Frame - Before & After

When my friend Sandi asked me to "make this frame pretty" I knew just what to do with it. I recently gave a similar vintage frame an adorable makeover. With some shabby white paint and alot of sanding the frame itself is transformed...but it was still just a frame...so I removed the backing, print and glass and replaced these with rabbit wire. Once this was tacked in place I added vintage ledger paper (thank you my sweet friend Roben-Marie over at http://www.robenmariesmith.com/ for passing along these treasured goodies to me!) to the back edges of the frame giving it a final vintage touch. Now Sandi can use it as a vintage chic magnetic board or even hang her favorite baubles from it! Enjoy!

What a neat idea for a frame! I tried to do the same wire trick on the doors to a little cabinet in my media room a few years back but used chicken wire instead. I like the look of yours better.
