Hanging Out and Looking Pretty!
Hope you had a wonderful weekend! John and I snuck away for a little one-on-one time Saturday and ended up at the ReStore again (romantic, huh?). I really do like going over there and looking for treasures. This time I found a fantastic window frame for a whopping .75 cents! It definitely called out to me. I knew I could turn it into something special with a little bit of paint and some chicken wire. John kind of gave me a weird look when I mentioned the chicken wire, but he’s always up for a good trip to Menards, so he whipped out a dollar and then drove me over to Menards.
We picked up a $5 roll of chicken wire (I still have $4.50 left on the roll if you need some…), and some wire and hooks for .97 each. We spray painted the chicken wire white (2 light coats).
I think this picture is so cool:
Then I primed the window frame:
Once the primer was dry, we sprayed on Sunshine Yellow (so happy!). It took about 3 coats to cover.
Then John stapled the wire to the back of the frame while I took pictures:
And then he trimmed it down while I took pictures:
And then we flipped it over and I had a blast hanging some of my colorful jewelry on it:
Of course, for now it looks all cute (for the pictures). I’m sure eventually it will get much more crowded and not as picture-worthy. : ) The sunshine-yellow frame is making me oh-so-happy.

Have a happy day!
