I saw this on Shanty2Chic the other day and I nearly died from excitement. We have a little section of bar space in our kitchen that is void currently because, well, it's just awkward. It opens to the living room and the kitchen so I hate putting frames there because at least one of the rooms is going to have a nice view of nothing but easel-backs. You guys know me - I'm a photographer for crying out loud - I love me some photo display options! This one takes the cake - I made mine double-sided! No more easel-back viewing while I do (ok, while the kid does) dishes!
Here's the first one I made... please disregard it's crookedness. I'll explain that in a minute.
I am NOT a fan of spray paint. No matter how perfect the conditions, it just never works for me and stupidly, I thought "oh spray paint, I'll fix you this time" and went right on ahead and tried to spray this sucker. Yea that didn't go over so well. If I had been smart, I would've started out doing exactly what I ended up having to do anyway... I would have pre-painted/distressed my pieces and THEN glued them together. Because, the reality is, after I got impatient and spray painted all this (in 20-degree weather with the glue still not dry, yes it was my fault) it all fell apart and that's what I wound up doing anyway. That's why it's crooked. Because by the time I got to the end? I just didn't care anymore. :)
