Puffy Frenchy Royal Frames

How else would you describe these 2 picture frames?

As usual, I totally forgot to take the before pictures. Originally they were both dark brown, and had mirrors inside.  I was going to see if I could pop the mirrors out to paint the frames, (which I drybrushed 2 coats of white on) and then replace the mirrors...

Oh yeah right.. sure!! Of course, the mirrors shattered. Not a big grrr.. but, a grrr just the same. I really thought they looked cute with the mirrors inside. Sooo, instead of mirrors I printed off a picture of a crown for each one, on dropcloth fabric, through my printer again.

I hot glued the cloth to the frames, and then stuffed a little bit of stuffing inside. I cut new cardboard backing and hot glued those to the back of the frames..

They turned out sooo cute!  I hung them both on the tiny wall next to my hutch.

(Nice crooked picture dingdong!! LMAO)

(Boy oh boy.. looks like I need a trip to the Chiro for an alignment.. FAST!!)

  1. Wow! That looks really lovely. I think I like it better than it would have looked with mirrors! And that's so smart to put stuffing in it! I need to get our printer working to start putting graphics on dropcloth...

    Also, I love your hutch and everything in it. Totally utterly jealous!


  2. Yeah, me too, Emily. I thought I'd like the mirrors, which I still do, but, I like the transformation a whole heck of alot better!

  3. Hi Tynk, Thank you so much for sharing this at my party. Your turned the accident of the broken mirrors into something even more beautiful.

  4. Thanks so much Sherry! :) And, thanks for hosting the party -- I really appreciate it!
    Hope you're having a fabulous weekend,

  5. I'm sure they would be pretty with the mirrors but the crowns are INSPIRED! A happy accident that was meant to be.

  6. Exactly Kluless! Now I'm the hunt to find mirrors again.. and cross my fingers I don't break em. But, it really wouldn't be that big of a loss ;-)


Please post a comment, I'd love to know what you think.
