Hey girl, hey! Finn found some pictures of us and asked for some tape. Y’all! He taped them to his wall by his bed! That was so stinkin’ cute and sweet!
The supplies are pretty simple!
Goodwill Outlet: 18 X 24″ frame I got for only .25! (more on that later!)
Debi’s Design Diary DIY Paint: White Swan, Old and Grey Barnwood Patina
Thrifted: Chicken wire (You may find some at hardware stores or online), small clothespins

I started by brushing on the White Swan with my custom Lizzy and Erin “Be You” paint brush. I used my heat tool to dry it, but you can set yours aside to dry if you wish.
Once dry, I brushed on the Old & Grey Barnwood Patina.
Here’s a closeup, y’all!
I sanded it just a little to give it a rustic, distressed finish.
I used my heavy-duty staple gun to attach the chicken wire to the frame. Be sure to pull the wire tight as you go!
I cut the metal edges with my tin snips.
SAFETY TIP: Y’all, when working with metal, please wear sleeves, safety glasses and some “cut gloves” (Kevlar makes good ones) because that chicken wire will get you and it will win!
And here it is, all finished!
TIP: You can put a backing on yours if you’d like! Some friends suggested fabric or burlap backing. Just staple it on after your wire is installed.
Well, almost! The last step was to attach small clothespins to hold Finn’s treasured photos!
Speaking of treasures, here’s another frame I found at Goodwill Outlet. Can you believe it was also just .25? I’m saving it for a very special project!
TIP: If you have a Goodwill Outlet (this is very different from the local Goodwill), be sure to remove any artwork from frames if you don’t plan to keep it. They weigh framed images / art, but the empty frames I’ve found are just a quarter!
I so appreciate you all for stopping by. Please leave a comment and let me know if you enjoyed this project!
Thanks so much,
