My 1st Framed Wreath

 This is my first framed wreath!  I LOVE it!  I have ruined this poor frame twice and to see it there in all it’s turquoise and brown glory with a perfectly matching wreath makes me SO HAPPY!

Shall we go on the journey of this frame?

Back in November, while leaving our apartment complex the hubby spotted this by the dumpster.

 I LOVE this painting but was NOT digging that golden frame.

So, I spray painted frame dark brown.  BUT I ruined the matte!
I also, did a TERRIBLE spray painting job. 
 Upset, I put this in my closet and haven’t touched it in months.  After seeing all the bright colorful frames all you ladies are making I decided to paint the frame blue and the matte brown.

But, it just doesn’t fit with this painting, does it?   Plus the blues are off.  So, I didn’t like it.  I hung it up here just to get it out of the way while I decided what to do next.  I guest posted at the lovely Bella of Bella Before and After‘s blog about that wreath, if your interested!

Then, I noticed how great it looked with this wreath!  So, I had to cut the painting out of the matted frame.  But don’t worry, I kept it.  I love this painting.  It’s called L’Amour et Psyché, enfants, which translated means Cupid and Psyche as Children.  It’s is a William-Adolphe Bouguereau painting.  I LOVE that it’s not the full version of the painting and therefore I am going to do something with it for Alice’s room.  Any suggestions?? Seriously, I need some suggestions! 


Now, that the painting is cut out this is what it looks like!

Isn’t it great!?  I love it!!  I hung it up in our hallway.  Here are a few more shots.
LOOK!!  It’s a hallway gremlin!! 🙂

So, what do you think?  Much better as a framed wreath?  What should I do with the painting portion?

Here is a little heads up, well actually a BIG heads up!  Sarah with Thrifty Decor Chick, Kate with Centsational Girl, Rhoda with Southern Hospitality and Layla with The Lettered Cottage are teaming up again to throw us another link party series.  It’s called Home May’d!!  I had so much fun joining their Holiday Home link party series.  So get your projects ready!  I know I am ALREADY working on mine!!

  1. Hey there girly, this looks incredible. LOVE the frame, with the beautiful wreath, it looks so cool. My heart almost broke when I saw you cut the picture out, then I read you saved it, whewww. Hmm, as for the picture, maybe mod podge it to a little table for her, or another piece of furniture. I know, I know, I'm brilliant, lol. Sorry couldn't be more help, he he. Hugs, Bella 🙂

  2. I think it turned out pretty also, i love what interesting ideas some of you ladies up come with when it comes to framing things other than pictures & photos. So much fun. :)Tnx for linking your goodies up at Who Made What? Weekends!
