First of all, is anyone else as excited about the royal wedding as I am?! I have my DVR set to start recording at 3am. I can't wait to see her dress! However, I do not know what the people on TV will talk about when it is over. I'm sure they will find something though. :)
When I was in Little Rock my Mom and I went to a new Goodwill store. I found this lamp and the duck picture. Oh, I had big plans for that lamp!! I primed it, spray painted it and then when I checked on it, the spray paint had literally cracked away from the lamp. It looked like it had the crackle finish on it that used to be so popular. It was so weird and something that had never happened before. My Dad's verdict was the lamp had some kind of finish on it that the paint just simply did not stick to. So it is now in the trash. The lamp only cost $6.00 so it was worth the effort.
My Dad made me a frame for the giant picture we got from Westin's one year pictures. He had some leftover molding so he made me a 16x24 frame for this picture:
We painted it with some leftover paint and we had a brand new, free frame! Thank you, Dad! I'm not sure this is the final resting place for the picture but this is where it is for now. Cody likes it here but I'm not sure. It is just sooo big!
I can't remember how much the duck picture cost, but I think it was $2.00. I took the glass and picture out, painted it with the same leftover white paint. Now I have a picture frame for Westin's 8x10 picture that we got.
Goodwill is my absolute favorite place to find picture frames. They are so cheap and you can find many shapes and sizes. Do not let the color of them turn you off. Just look for the shape and size you need and you can paint them whatever color you want. :)
