Just look at her! Boring, unfinished wood, water damage and terrible, crude uneven wood carving. She was a disaster. Someone donated her to the ReHouse, and they threw her next to the dumpster. Honestly, I don’t blame them. They are in the business of architectural salvage, not “crafts gone wrong” salvage.
But a frame is still a frame, so I snatched it up and took it home. I’ve been playing around with vintage sheets lately and used some strips of fabric to wrap the frame. I secured fabric to the frame with hot glue and the corners needed a little glue to cover properly too. Different, huh?
I stapled some chicken wire to the back of the frame. The guy at Lowes said, “Good luck with that!”. Ha. No chickens for me, just the cute hexagon shape for projects like this.
I found this picture on my phone; Joshua took it when I wasn’t paying attention. I used a clothes pin to hang a note that says, “Chicken wire- not just for chickens” I’m going to send this back over to the ReHouse. I can’t wait to see if anyone recognizes Theresa, and hope maybe someone will buy this vintage-fabric-wrapped-chicken-wire-memo-board.
