Then one day, I found this online & quickly ordered it, thinking this was exactly what I was looking for.
When it arrived, the white frame was distressed with red. Deep blood red. Hmmm, I didn't notice that in the picture. Not a problem though.
I took a teeny, tiny paint brush & with the blue wall paint, I painted over all the red.
It looked fine & my husband hung it up for me. I was pleased...
...until about a week later. Something was just not right. I couldn't quite pinpoint it.
Then it hit me!
When entering the bathroom, you saw the side view of this picture. That candleholder sticking out reminded me, oh please forgive me for being crass, of a male appendage. It had to go! I asked the hubs if he would be so kind as to remove the candle holder part. He really got a kick out of it when I told him why. Men!
He took the candleholder off & back on the wall it went, just the picture, no candleholder. I was pleased...
...until about a week later. Something was not right, again.
I decided the blue that I had so painstakingly painted was annoying me, so I told hubs to spray paint the frame all white. I also asked him to pop out the picture part.
I covered it with some fabric (osnaburg). I bought 2 fabric rosettes from etsy (see here), added some pearl beads to the centers & glued them to the fabric board.
And now, I am happy to report, I am pleased as I finally have it right!
That poor picture has been through the ringer. It may seem I'm crazy, but I hope I'm not alone. You have all done something like this too, right? ;D
