Project Completed

I just showed you this huge find at the DI!
I know totally Ugly right??

But with the whopping price of $ was a must have!

This frame was massive.
So we ( and when I say " we" I mean my sweet Hubby) cut it down. We cut the frame and the canvas to the size I wanted it!

Then after my slave (heehee) reassembled the frame,
we filled it with wood glue where it needed it.
And sanded it slightly.
Then painted!

The frame black ( I know a real shocker!)

And painted the canvas too.
This part I changed my mind on several times.
So it went from white, to antique white, to white again.

After assembling the pieces. I started to lay down my vinyl that my super talented sis-in-law designed!

So simple, but elegant!

Now for some new candles (different color, I am thinking orange) and some new accessories to make this look even better!
I love it!
It makes such a bold statement!

I wish I could take credit for this fabulous idea, but I totally got it from the talented and fabulous women over at Joys of Home.
She is amazing and totally inspiring!

If you want to make one too. My sis-in-law is selling the vinyl. It is 12.50 for the large design, 9.50 for a medium design, and $7.50 for a small one.
And shipping is only 2.00 no matter where you live! So head on over to her site and let her know if you want one too!
