Five Minute Project

I have a problem. Ok, so I have a lot of problems but this one has to do with my living room. Let's talk about the fact that we have lived in this house going on 4 years and I still have EMPTY picture frames. Don't judge. I know that's sad. About a year ago I printed a couple black and white wedding pictures off on computer paper just to fill two of the smaller frames. Well my two 11x14 frames have stayed necked all these years. Somehow I can walk past them every day and just turn a blind eye. I even had some wedding pictures touched up by Hillary, you know... Mckmama's sister. She did a great job. Too bad I've been too lazy to pick which picture I want to have developed.

That brings us to Sunday night when we had people over for Super Bowl. Jes walked in and said she couldn't believe that my frames were STILL empty. I laughed and mentioned that I was thinking that I'd just frame some fabric until I decide on a picture. She asked if I had fabric left over from upholstering my living room chairs. She though that fabric would look good.

Last night I got the wild hare to frame some fabric. While we were watching Chuck on DVR, Jonathan paused it to get something and I ran to the closet and found some fabric. I grabbed my cutting mat and iron and voila I now don't have an empty frame! Then we sat back down and finished watching Chuck. Man, I love that show! But seriously I don't even know if this took me 5 minutes. I'll probably switch out the fabric one day to a more modern print, but for now I have one more frame down and only one empty frame to go! Whoohoo me! And thanks for the idea Jes! I can always count on you:)

What do you think of my FREE 5 minute project?

That Jes is amazing! That looks great. Why did we think it needed to be wedding pics? Artists eyes are so helpful. Love it!
