I saw this idea for a photo display a few days before Christmas and decided to make a few for some close friends and my momma for Christmas gifts. (and one for me, muwahaha) They were so easy and fun!
I forget how fun it is to get dusty and paint covered sometimes! (on a small scale, that is, haha)
On a fun note-look at cute little baby Sadie in the pic above! It was the first photo I found on my messy desk. Crazy how fast they grow! I managed to find pictures of my friend's kids with Sadie, so I clipped those to their photo board.
I love that you can swap out the photo in, like, .0005 seconds.....If you're Superman....but still. Quick!
You could also use it for recipe cards, or...something else paper-related that I can't think of...
The one thing I did different was I had Rory cut some triangle pieces and glued them to the back for a stand, since I couldn't find a 2x8x8 piece of wood. Just 1x8x4. That size still worked fine. I got some little wooden topper thingys (very scientific name) at Michaels, and used some white house paint, then sanded the edges a bit to distress. The wood was light colored, so it doesn't show much. Oh well! I did use the little furniture tacks she suggests in the tutorial. They came in a huge pack for like $1.25...so hopefully I can use them for something else!
What do you think? I love them! (that's why I made one for me ;)
On a side note-make sure to come back tomorrow! I have an awesome giveaway planned for you guys, with multiple prizes! AAand a screaming good deal for you readers as well....mysterious, eh?
