Framed Art

Here's a little project with a long history in the making. I've had this tin ceiling tile for what seems like ages. While working on different JunkFest projects, it never quite fit or created the look I was going for. Low and behold in my "to throw" pile I eyed this glass-long-gone window frame that looked to be about the same size...yesiree - it appeared a marriage was about to occur!Simple nails with heads large enough to grab the tin where attached to the frame and holy cats, folks - I actually had a nice piece of "art"!But I couldn't stop there. Maybe I needed to add a few black and white photographs?




This photo of my little nieces was perfect. I added magnets to some old earrings for a bit of sparkle, even though these little girls don't need any more sparkle - they are adorable just the way they are!




A quick spray of poly so more paint won't peel was the ticket.

It makes a pretty big "statement" now all framed in my spare bedroom!



I also glued magnets to these random numbers...I adore the look of black, silver and white together.

Sure hope you're having a great junky day!

  3. LOve it! I have six large ceiling tiles in my garage...very rusty and peeling...after I clean them up a bit, I'll take your advice and spray them with poly. Good idea
