Wedding Anniversary Frame



This is going to be the fastest post I have ever written!

I’m sneaking it in before my hubby gets home from work.

I just had to share this with you.

It’s our 19th wedding anniversary today and this is his gift.

I wanted to give him a unique, personalized, wedding anniversary frame, but something I could make.

What do you think?

I like it.  There’s tons of mistakes, and it’s not perfect, but I MADE IT WITH LOTS OF LOVE.

Here’s what I started with:

wedding frame gold

Yes, yes, I know gold is in, but I don’t like it.

So I painted it.

I started with white, rubbed it off with a rag a little.

Then I added turquoise, and wiped that off too.

I wanted an old distressed look.

I also wrote some personal words on the mat board with a sharpie.

I took one of our favorite photos to the drug store and had them do a black & white.

That’s it!

Can’t wait to give it to him!

Peace out!

Happy Anniversary Richard!

I’m one lucky Redhead.

I love you!

    Love this! IMHO, this type of gift is more precious than anything that could be bought in a store….well, maybe not diamonds. 😉 LOVE me some diamonds! Seriously, I hope he loved it too and a belated Happy Anniversary and all good wishes for many more.
