Old Frame Makeover


   My mom bought this frame at a garage sale and gave it to me so I could make it over. At first I didn't know what to do with it until I remembered I had an old photobooth picture that I thought would look good in black and white and framed and this frame was just the right size! I apologize for the quality of the photos, all the pics on my blog I take with my iphone! One day I will own a super nice camera!

So I had this photo on our fridge:
{like I said it is old, so don't judge my hair! lol}
{my hubby looks very handsome though ;)}
I liked it but didn't want that Gattis wording on the bottom and
didn't care much for the pink tint so I scanned it and using my photoshop
I turned it into this...
I painted the frame & matting white and painted the trim inside the matting blue...

{oh yes please excuse my fancy waffles and spiderman flattened boxes I used
to prevent painting on my dinning room table}

I printed out our photo & wrote the word Love with a fancy sharpie and 
here is the final product in my bedroom...
What do you think?
It's not perfect! Just like all my other projects
but I love it! :)

Have you noticed anything new on my blog? 
I added a background, a new flag to my banner and changed my about me photo. 
What do you think? It looks very summery to me and summer is about to
end but I still like it! and......
Guess what?! I am having a giveaway this week!
So keep an eye out for that post!! :)
