I started a ‘little bit’ of a remodel on my back porch, recently. I did this cross stitch several years ago and it has been on my back porch, ever since. Today, I decided it needed a new look. Where else would I start…..spray paint, of course! I masked off the glass, too lazy to take it apart, and gave her a few light coats of black. How about that? Now on to the real fun. Since I live on an old farm, I went out to the ‘back forty’ (it’s really thirteen), and grabbed some old rusty wire fencing. I then cut the fencing piece so that some of the edges showed outside the frame, sorta’ like a double frame look.Now I have the basic form and then, all I did was take a pair of pliers and bend the rest of the wire, ‘this way and that way’. How’s that for professional decorator speak? I then, turned it over and put some weight on it and used my craft glue gun to glue the metal fencing to the wood frame, in several spots. I like the black frame a lot more. So now I must move on to the other items on the porch…..next is the light fixture and the coat hanger.
