DIY

I'm a self-proclaimed Non-Crafter. I do not craft. I cook and have plans to one day sew, and I've ventured into the arena of furniture restoration a few times. But most DIY crafty projects send me running in the other direction where I can safely admire from afar.


But then I saw this in the Pottery Barn catalog:



And I really wanted it. But I didn't want to pay any money.


Enter very handy husband. 


With RJ's "help" (I directed; he labored) we produced this:





I LOVE it! So much that I can't tuck it away after the Holidays. So it's going to go in Landon's room where it will hold photos of him and his friends (and maybe I'll sneak some in of his parents too) until next Christmas season.


Super easy and inexpensive. I still need to find cute little clips or mini-clothespins. But otherwise we actually had the old gold frame in a closet, but you could easily find one for a few dollars at a thrift store. Then all you need is some thin wire and a handful of small screws. We screwed the tiny screws into the sides, wrapped the wire around a screw head and then pull it taunt wrapping the end of the wire around a sew head on the opposite side. Viola! I'm a crafty DIYer.
