DAMN YOU HGTV! My first DIY project

I am addicted. So is the hubby.



Design on a dime, Income Property, House Virgins, and Bang for your buck and Homes on Homes?.

Yeah its like crack. The hubby and I watch it almost EVERY night.

Well I have been bitten by the bug. The design/DIY bug.

BAD I have about 6 projects on the go.

This was the first "small" thing I decided to try and I was super excited! I found this REALLY beautiful frame however ugly it was... It was brown but the shape was good so I popped out the glass

Used primer! (so important I have learned I will have to show you my HOW NOT to project I had started)

Then while its drying I headed off to the craft store to find fabric. Yes fabric. I saw it on Design on a dime and I thought "I can do that" So I did. I tapped the fabric to the filler thing that was in the frame.

Then I looked at the frame when it was dry and did not like it. Did a little research that took me FOREVER because I fell in love with no less than 90 Design blogs and then I

Sealed it because thats what the design blogs said to do and its beautiful!!


What do you think?

(please try to ignore that I did not iron the fabric first I was too excited!)

I'm also addicted to HGTV but I've never tried anything. I think I could even do that, thanks for sharing and I'm sure it was so much cheaper than a picture. Although I'm addicted to kirklands and there stuff is pretty cheap.

That is so cool and modern. I get excited too when I am doing a project. I have been known to skip a step or two.
