Today I went to check the mail and found the usual…bills and junk. One of the pieces of junk had a pretty little picture on it and I didn’t really want to throw it away so I decided to turn it into free wall art for my kitchen.
I started with this old frame and matting.
Here is my Arbor Day Foundation junk mail.
After a couple of coats of paint on the matting and frame and a little distressing, here it is now.
Not too bad for free, right?
I made a little flower to cover some writing that the matting didn’t hide.
Thanks for stopping by! :o)
