it makes sense Smiley The blue is just the wall, no padding or anything. I wanted it to be simple to "fix" when I sell the house Smiley

Not sure if this is the right forum..but I'm not sure where this belonged.

About two years ago, I came across a post (either here or on craftgrrl) that had a cool idea for a pic frame. I told my boyfriend about it and he said he'd make me one since he's a contractor and already has the tools.

***UPDATE*** I FOUND THE ORIGINAL POST. I decide to google and remembered this looking familiar. It's from some other blog that must collect from a bunch of other blogs? I dunno. But here's the link (http://www.curbly.com/alttext/posts/74-Easy-Photo-Wall-on-a-Shoe-s-string-s-wire-Budget) to the post that gave me this idea. It was a photo wall...I just decided to make a frame. I had originally bought clips with hooks but decided they would do too much damage to the photos (cuz they had sharp teeth).

He's busy...and forgetful. And two years later, he finally made me this frame! Today, we put the finishing touches on it and I finally got to hang it on my wall! I'm so excited cuz I've been patiently waiting for it and it's finally here. I know you've seen these before, but here's my boyfriend and my version of the frame. I got the cute little clothespins at Michaels crafts. My boyfriend used dye and stain on the wood. He used maple from Orcas Island for the main part of the frame and did an inlay of douglas fir. After he dyed/stained, he worked it over a few times with tongue oil. It's got a rough finish look, but is smooth to the touch and not glossy at all!

Enjoy the pics! There's a ton!!! Smiley





The wood looks better than in these pics Sad



How it looks compared to my wall size.


The wires are attached to an eyelet screw


LOVE these clothespins!



I didn't leave enough space at the top for the clothespin...but I didn't want the pics to hang over the frame at the bottom. And I wanted to be able to have both portrait and landscape shots



Also...something I finished a couple years ago but never posted....a french memo board wall!!  I did try putting pics in there as planned..but it looked way too cluttered. I like it plain. baby blue with brown ribbon/thumbtacks

I thought you did a great job on the painting..and then I saw the clay stuff and thought CUTE!  AND THEN I SAW THE BACKS.....great job! I'm so glad you went all the way and did the plastic wrapped straws. Really amazing details, girl! Awesome stuff

^^ that's what I was thinking. It looks like the sharpest point would just pass over the hole. But I suppose if you have a small jump ring, and you're wearing it, it'd just be at the very top of the hole so there'd be room.

They look great anyway!   Wish I had a clue how to work with metals!

I think it's a great concept! I love how it seems the bullet has pierced the glass of the frame and the blood is spilling out. great job! I'm sure your friend would love to see what you did with it
