I’m Sarah.

After graduating college, I worked as a TV news reporter at an NBC affiliate outside of Chicago. I then retired from that life to be a stay at home mom to my three little ones. While at home I was able to rekindle my love for decorating and crafts. A blog seemed like the perfect place to share those ideas. There is inspiration everywhere, I hope you find some here.

The other day I was at Michaels, just wandering around looking for crafts to make and I saw these wooden frames. I just had to buy one because I loved how they looked. I had so many ideas of things I could do with it. I decided on a hair bow holder for Elly's room. I wanted to go for more of a vintage feel. It was really easy to make and only cost me $6.
first. Get a picture frame or something like this wooden frame ($6 at Michaels)
second. Cut chicken wire to fit the inside (we had some left over in our garage)

third. Give the frame a vintage paint job. I painted it white with some spray paint I had. Once it dried, I sanded it down a little. I then rubbed some brown paint over it, and immediately wiped it off. The brown paint will make some of your sandpaper marks stand out, making it look worn and antique.

fourth. Hot glue the chicken wire to the back of the frame.

fifth. I used a ribbon to hang it. I simply hot glued some ribbon to the back.
