Monday Made It

I got sidetracked last week, so I didn't get around to making my project for Monday Made It. But today, I got busy.

I'm not going back to school this year because I retired in June. So this Made It is for my house.

My living room is decorated with all sorts of interesting stars. However, I had this one little space that needed something.

My mom died four years ago and while cleaning out her house, I put this picture aside, thinking I would do something with it one day.


First I removed the angel picture, and then I took the hardware off and spray painted the frame blue.


Then I spray painted the hardware oil rubbed bronze. (I tried removing the pink paint, but the finish underneath was a bright brass - not my style at all.)


Next I traced a star on some linen fabric . . . 


. . .filled in the star with red craft paint (forgot to take a picture of this part) and grabbed all the reddish colored buttons I could find. I used them to fill in the star.


While the glue dried, I reattached the hardware.



 And here is the finished project! I love it.


Now go see all the other great Monday Made Its at

  2. Love the star picture! What a great way to reuse an item you already had and it is still your mom's with a little spin of your personality! P.S. I want to retire...not going to happen any time soon though. Ha!
