A couple of birthdays ago my dad, who happens to love everything high tech, gave me this awesome Digital Photo Frame.
But it didn't really go with my home decor! The frame was too plain, kind of modern. What to do? Well, if you know me, you know that I can never leave well enough alone. I just had to shabby chic it somehow.
We had some molding left over from a home improvement project so I asked my hubby if he would miter the corners and make a frame for me. The original frames aren't real wood so I decided to epoxy the molding to the frame. Didn't want to risk breaking the frame when drilling or nailing. The reason why I decided to do it this way instead of just getting a ready made frame for it was because the digital frame was not an ordinary frame, it was especially adapted for the screen. And if you're wondering why I just didn't paint the frame it came with well, it just wasn't shabby chic enough.
I used some wood filler to clean up the corners and gave it a shabby chic paint job. Oh! the little dot you see in the bottom center of the frame is a hole my hubby drilled for the remote censor. Clever huh?
Here it is finished and displayed proudly. Finally it fits in!And this is what the frame looks like turned on. The flower you see on top belongs to a plate stand. I just hung it over the frame for a bit more shabby chicness. The kids in the picture are my daughter and her best friend since kinder. I am so happy with how this project turned out. Just goes to show you there is nothing that can't be "shabby chiced"
