Upcycled Oval Frame

by - January 21, 2013

It's snowing here and boy am I glad I was able to get in some spray painting on Saturday before the temperature dropped!  This is another salvaged piece from my late mother-in-law's house.  She had some dried flowers in there but I took it a part and gave it a quick makeover.

The frame was originally gold but I gave it two coats of flat white spray paint.  While that was drying, I used a bit of osnaburg fabric and this great French bee image that is floating all around Pinterest (thankfully my sister Kathy from Creative Home Expressions pinned it!).
I printed the image onto transfer paper and simply ironed it onto my fabric.  Then I hot glued the entire fabric insert (glued onto a piece of cardboard) back into the frame.  I didn't even put the glass back in.
I have it propped up in our guest room for now with a collection of crowns from Decor Steals.   Wish I would have centered the crown transfer more with the top of the frame but I can live with it.   I love how the osnaburg gives it a burlap look.
