Something old made something new!

Good morning!
Did you all enjoy your weekend?  Mine was great but I was SUPER busy!  Saturday started off with a trip to my favorite store!  IKEA!  I swear I could spend hours in that place! (and I actually did but unintentionally.....don't ever go to IKEA on the weekend- it's beyond insane in there!)  I'm sad to say that IKEA has chosen to discontinue my favorite bookcase- the Expedit series.  There will be a new bookcase released soon and it will be similar to the Expedit but a little different. So if you're like me and love the Expedit bookcases- you better stock up while you can!

My project today is an 8" x 10"  frame made from old reclaimed barn wood and some chicken wire. Something old made something new!  This beautiful frame was purchased at Hobby Lobby (all their frames are 50% off everyday which made this particular frame $12.49)   I removed the back and the glass.  Then using a staple gun- I attached some chicken wire to the back of the frame.  The flowers from the Burlap and Blooms Simply Created Wreath kit are my embellishments.  I LOVE the circle flowers and it's quite possible that I have an addiction to them.  I have been making them all day for various other projects!  So fun to make!

I needed to add some pictures for my frame so I borrowed some of my daughter's tiny Instagram prints.  I love them! These tiny little prints are so much fun!!  They are attached to the chicken wire with Mini Clothespin's that came in the Tag-a-Bag accessory kit in the full length Catalog.
