Framed Family Monogram & Collage
I found five great wood frames for $1.00 each - love a great deal! One frame is slightly different and smaller than the other four, so here is what I have planed them. A framed family monogram with black & white individual family photos in the other frames, that all together will form a collage!
All the frames came painted white and a bit worn looking - which I like. A couple of them however looked like they where coming apart at the joints and another had some extra paint on it in two different colors. So this is what I had to do...
With my finger, a light weight and quick drying spackling compound I filled the large cracks in the joints.
Sprayed all the frames with two coats of an off white satin finish paint.
Found a pretty and inexpensive wood G that I painted.
I put the paper backing and cardboard in first then centered the G and glued it in place.
Now all I have to do is frame the black & white photos of each family member and hang them around the monogrammed frame!
