Ball mason jars are not the only thing on my list to collect for Sammy and the The Writer's wedding in September. I have also been looking for old frames that will be part of the wedding reception decor.
They will be used for various reasons, pictures, labels, menu, directions....whatever Sammy wants them for - I ask no questions! Except...."do you want them "shabbied"?" , as my friend Suebee calls what she's so good at doing. The answer was yes, so I set about this week trying to "shabby" up some of the frames I've found.
I tried to find frames with interesting textures or designs, painted them a shade of white, let them dry and then took some sand paper to them to give them that "shabby chic" look and make the textures and designs on them pop a bit.
I think they turned out pretty well, for an amatuer "shabbier".
I hung a few on my wall for the moment, for picture purposes and for a place to store them while we wait for September.
We will have to see what Sammy thinks of them.
