Sneak Peek At.......

I've been working on another project, this one is for my living room.  A few weeks ago I saw this idea , it was like a light bulb went off!  I finally knew what I wanted to do for my living room.  This frame will be the center piece for a gallery wall.
Here is how it started its life, minus the very ugly slightly abstract "painting" of a bull and fighter.

I decided to paint the frames the colors that are in my curtains, this one got a coat of burnt umber (orange) and then glazed with a mix of glaze, brown paint, and a bit of black to darken it.  I finished it off with a coat of polyacrylic.

The chicken wire came from a friend, and I really, really wanted rusty wire, but then hubby told me that it doesn't really rust.  So, I did the next best thing, pulled out a can of hammered copper spray paint.  Now I have my somewhat rusty look.

So far I think I have 10 frames, and I still have two to go. I am up to $12 cost so far for all of it!  Love that price!  Hopefully it will be done next week.  It takes a while to hot glue the chicken wire in place.
Have a great weekend!!
