I’m not sure why I love a good fleur-de-lis, but I do!
See that wonderful picture above? It is from Funky Junk Interiors! I was in love with her bead board “office” sign! While piddling in the garage trying to figure out what I wanted to work on, I came across some scrap tongue and groove bead board. I then went to my stash of picture frames and chose one that would fit well with my scraps.
I cut the scraps with my compound miter saw. They were a little too wide, so I ripped a tongue off of one board and the groove off of another board.
I tongue and grooved them together.
I placed them in the frame and secured them with some glazier points.
I had spray painted the frame and then I dry brushed some black onto the bead board.
I used the same stencil that I used for my fleur-de-lis pillow.
I pounced some black paint onto the bead board.
I wasn’t a huge fan of this frame, but now that it’s sporting a new design, it’s growing on me.
I like to give a finished look to the back of my work. I did this by using double stick tape on the frame. After applying the tape, I placed an oversized piece of brown craft paper onto the back. After pressing it down really well all the way around, I used a razor blade knife to trim off the excess.
I don’t always keep my projects, but I just couldn’t part with this one.
