Hello sun-shiney faces! How are ya? Today I will be sharing instructions for a picture holder-wall-framer-clothespin-thingy-ma-jig. This is a FAST and easy project.. actually let’s say it SHOULD be.. but my life has been crazy busy lately. Lots of skates to tie, cheekers to wipe, dipes to change.. you get my drift. Let’s get down to ‘business’ now shall we?
Start with a vintage frame..
the bigger the better!
Next add paint and a paint brush.
Antique White Ace Royal is what clothed my grunge-ola.
Throw in hammer and nails, or screw gun and screws.
A tape measure and pencil is handy at this point too.
On your mark.. get set.. flex!
Work it ladies (and men).
Make sure your marks are directly across
from each other as this is how you’ll attach
your wire to ther frame.
A pain in the butt! But I used tweazers to take the clothes pins apart.
Spray painted them,
then put them back together.
(you could skip this part if you’d rather leave the pins ‘au natraule.)
Next up, Mod Podge and Vintage Wall Paper!
Wrap the wire tightly around the screw, string the clothespins on,
and attach the wire to the other side.
I have totally been in the ‘getting rid of junk’ mode.
I’m SO happy this frame didn’t fall prey
Speaking of organizing… I just sent out
a little e-letter on the matter.
Thanks to my facebook pals for inspiring and motivating me!

Tell me the honest to gutsness truth, I promise I can handle it!
