From Junk Mail to Wall Art

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)
