As I have been adding all of the finishing touches to Landry's room I have known that I wanted to get some picture frames that I could use to display photos of my little man as he grows. I remembered that I had a load of picture frames left over from our wedding. Here is one of them: Clearly the frame is black...one of my favorite colors...but I have made a pact with myself to avoid using black in Landry's room so...here comes the spray paint...about $3 at Lowes.
I took the backs and glass off of the frames, laid them out on some cardboard in the garage and started painting.
I decided that I wanted to matte my photos with fabric scraps from Landry's bedding. So, here is what I did. I took the back of the frame...you know, the part with the little stand-thingy on it...and ran a strip of hot glue around the edge. Then I covered it with the fabric scraps.
Not the best pictures but hopefully you can understand what I did..
After the fabric was glued on I trimmed up the edges.
The idea with my frames is that I can easily pull out the pictures and trade them for new ones as Landry grows. Obviously we do not have photos of him yet...and I didn't want to place empty frames in his room...so , I used his last ultra-sound photos. I simply used double-sided tape to place the photos on the fabric covered backs and then put the frames back together. Here are all three frames:
Here is Landry all curled up in mommy's tummy...
His adorable profile...not that I am biased or anything...
