One of my favorite things to do is to find old and grungy items and transform them into beautiful and useful pieces. I found this frame on the side of the road.
I removed the chicken wire from our dog park which was left behind by the previous owner. Chicken wire isn’t easy to work with, but I knew I would have some use for it, eventually.
I lightly sanded and then primed the frame. I gave it two coats of paint and then distressed it a little bit to get the “aged” look.
A few staples hold the chicken wire in place.
My daughter wants to use it as a bulletin board in her first college apartment, but it’s also great for jewelry display.
