Bless this Nest
I have been busy the last several weeks painting and redecorating the master bedroom. Early this summer I found a new picture frame, still in the packaging, at a garage sale for a couple of dollars. I love photography and seldom pass up reasonably priced frames at garage sales. This particular frame was one that held six 4x6 pictures. I have a plant shelf down the entire length of a long wall in the master bedroom that is very difficult to decorate.
Several months earlier I had a gift card to Kohl's and bought the "Bless this Nest" vinyl wall art. With the name Robin, I am fond of all things bird related and have bird cages, nests, and bird pictures and decor all over my home. I had not used the vinyl because I wasn't sure where to put it. As I was contemplating what to put on the plant ledge, I remembered both the vinyl and the frame. A perfect decorating solution for my tight budget!
I'm not sure that this even needs an explanation, but just in case anyone else is interested in this project, here is how I did it. I opened the frame and removed the mat for the six 4x6 prints, and attached the burlap to the piece of cardboard that came with the frame, stretching it and securing it with tape on the back. Then I put the frame back together and placed the vinyl wall art directly on the glass. That's it!
This was a very quick and easy project and only cost me a couple of dollars!
