frame it.

remember when we took a fun trip over the mountains and through the woods?
we had papa whip up this frame. we thought it was the perfect opportunity to bring some color & inspiration to our workspace. it totally needs it!

here's what you'll need to make your own:
frame (ours is 2 x 2.5 ft)
spray paint (we used krylon in ballet slipper)
sealer & finish (we used zinsser)
staple gun

if you aren't lucky enough to have your own handy man, you could use any frame you can get your hands on! this is a super simple project that can add personality to any room! all you need to do is take your frame outside and spray paint a couple of even coats. after it dries, spray a thin coat of sealer onto your frame. while your sealer dries, decide how many rows of wire you would like and cut as many even strips. on a hard flat surface, flip over your frame (make sure sealer is dry first!) and lay out your wire. next, staple the end of each wire to the back of the frame. tadaaa! use clothespins to add some inspiration, memories, jewelry or photos!

has anyone else ever made one of these? we'd love to see it!
please share.

did you hear that we hit a bat yesterday? ha.
