I’ve been bringing more of who we are into the decorating of our home. I want the pieces in my home to tell stories about us. To reveal our personalities.
This is my wine cork frame! I altered it from this cheap old ugly plain wooden frame…
I painted the frame brown, added a layer of Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint, and then added the corks using Glossy Accents. Lastly, I topped it with the Tim Holtz Metal Clock and Spinners. I decided to use a flower-shaped light blue brad, just to lighten it up a bit.
What does the frame say about us? Mainly that we drink a lot of wine.
But also, each cork is a remnant from a relaxed evening of sharing with, story-telling with, and laughing with someone I love.
I also happen to love the design and look of wine corks. I love the art and the typography. I love the texture of the cork.
Right now there is a wall of three framed photos of my kids, lined up straight — an old school decorating style. It’s quite out-dated. I’ve been wanting to make a collage of framed photos and art for that area but I need more frames. I’ll be altering a few more old ugly frames for this project. I’ll share as I complete them!
