Doesn’t this Monogram on Burlap Frame scream FALL! I love the colors and the rustic look the burlap gives this project.
I decided to go with a burlap and lace theme for our dining room this Fall, I can’t wait to share it with you. It was simple and inexpensive to put together, so stay tune via Facebook, Twitter or Feedburner.
For this project I just used things I had at home. I bought this “not my style” picture for $4 and trashed the picture and re-did the frame.
I used Robins Egg Blue paint to cover the frame and just did one coat so that the wood frame under would slightly show, to give it a rustic look. I covered the backing on the frame with burlap and used masking tape to keep it together. Then I painted my monogram with Ivory paint and hot glued it onto the burlap. I shared here some tips when working with burlap, read it if you haven’t worked with burlap before. I did not place the glass back on the frame.
That took me about 25 minutes because I made my letter T from chipboard but if you are just painting a bought letter this is a good 12 minute project. The cost $4 for the frame the rest of the supplies I had on hand.
