Have you ever purchased something just because you liked it, but really didn't have a place for it? Yep, me too! I saw this frame awhile back and liked it for several reasons. One... it was one sale and two... I had an additional 25% off coupon! In the cart it went! Of course, I could have placed a favorite family picture in it, but I was in the mood to do some tweaking. I also had an art stand which I had purchased during one of my antique expeditions. The stand usually holds a family portrait printed on canvas, but I am always moving things around, so the stand stood empty. Art stand...frame....what could I do?
After a giving it a little thought, an idea emerged! I cut a piece of painters cloth and got out my alphabet stencils, paint, and a stencil brush. In literally no time, I had stenciled the words, "Faith, Family, Food!" After allowing for drying time, I popped it into the frame and placed it in our dining room. I can't wait to make a few additional sayings for the upcoming seasons. How about "The Harvest Diner" with a happy pumpkin in the corner? Or for Christmas, the "Candy Cane Cafe"! You could also use burlap for a different look. The options are endless!
