This isn't really the greatest photo- the glare from the lights and camera splotch it up, but I wanted to show my latest creation.

I found this beautifyl shabby, wooden frame (say it with me!) at the auction (you knew that was coming, didn't you?) a while back. It had no glass in it- just the wooden frame with the wonderfully shabby white paint job.

I kept it for over a month in my spare room until I got inspired. I found this poster that I had bought at Dollar Tree many months ago. It's pink roses with the word 'floribunda' written at the top. The poster was originally larger, but I thought it went perfectly with frame so I cut it down to fit.

Then, I simply took the glass out of another picture frame I had (that frame was just an ugly, chinsy one) and voila! something new to hang in my living room. I already had all the materials, I just needed to put them together.

(I've had that same glare problem and if you stand a little to the side and take your picture at an angle then it seems to take care of the glare and the flash.) I love your posts ~ keem em coming!
