hope everyone had a nice weekend
a few years ago i bought this cavallini & co calendar when it was going out of date with the intention of framing the pages. you might remember this ..it's taken me a while to get around to adding more. i love these antique style sea life prints with french script, and an environmentally friendly way to have some coral in the home.
i sanded the dark timber colour frames that i bought, painted them with quite a few coats of white paint then cut the prints to fit.
not sure where these will hang, but for now i like them on our fireplace mantle.
this week i'm linked here
I've always thought of using an old calendar for frames but never got around to it. Great job with this, looks so beachY chic!ReplyDelete
Those are fabuolous. Thanks for sharing at my newbie party. I notice when you link up, it does not take you directly to your page...check it out, perhaps you know why. I just don't want you to miss visits.ReplyDelete
This is looking so wonderful and a perfect beach decor. Loving the finish on the frames and the white pillar candles are looking awesome... I love candles! Have a great week!~PoppyReplyDelete
