They were cheap at under $2 a piece and rough. Perfect. Jason measured and cut the angles.
We stained it using leftover stain we found in the garage from our nook project. Jason connected each piece together using "L" brackets.
And my giant frame came to life at just under $12 total cost. Gotta love that!
Then it was time to accessorize. The giant frame would not cut it alone. I added an old window frame and two old frames. I painted one in my favorite DecoArt Spa Blue for a fun splash of color.
Of course, in honor of summer and because I am a sucker for a cute pennant banner, I had to make a mini one for the old window! Makes me smile everytime.
I am calling it the "Happy Mantel"!
Thanks for stopping by.
I'll be partying at these blogs this week!
