~Whatcha Working on Wednesday~

Hello blogging friends,
Guess what? The sun is out today, I really can't believe it ...just wonderful to see! Hopefully it stays around for a while:)

Well, this is what I've been working on today...I printed Abe and George off a while ago but never had the right size frames. Finally at GW I found two of the same frames in an 8x10 size and painted them and got them in the frames, I'm thrilled with them! Now you have to bare with me because I just hung them where ever I had two nails together I wouldn't normally hang them this far apart I had to take the picture this way because of a glare.
Remember these? I found these candle holders at GW too and painted and distressed them...I'm pretty sure I'm keeping this one! I doubt I'll keep it here but like I said I hung them where I could find a nail:)
This one turned out good too...hey, for .59 I can sell it at the yard sale next weekend:)

I like this one and I used the battery candle stick in it. Poor George had a glare on him, Chris was here to drop off his clothes and couldn't get over me wanting to decorate with pictures of the presidents he also wanted to know if I was doing the other ones and hanging them.LOL

When I was removing the wallpaper from the entryway the border I had up there came completely off all in one roll so I made these next two pictures from it, there is a bigger house on it but I need a bigger frame these are 5x7.

I think they both cost me .99 a piece for the frames:)

Thanks for stopping by...love hearing from you and just love your blogs always full of ideas:)

  1. Your blog is so full of ideas...like using the wallpaper to make pictures! I would NEVER have thought to do that!
    I am really digging the black...that is what I have been painting a lot of my finds too!
    Have a great afternoon!

  2. Hi Rondell,
    I love the prints of the Presidents and especially love the barn wallpaper prints-I LOOOOOVE barns so much!

    Great ideas as usual! Thanks and have a wonderful sunny week!


  3. I like your first candleholder better than mine now. I took the bottom handle off and used a large candle inside the box instead. Maybe I should get that handle out and re-think it.

    Your pictures and frames look great. I especially love the ones you did from your border.

    Enjoy your sunshine!

  4. Rondell,
    Great framed pieces! :) I like the pieces from your border the most!

    And great job on the remakes of the candleholders!

    Have a great day :)

    Great job on your prim pieces. I have been reading your blog but haven't had time to post much. I'm off next week a couple of days. Maybe we can do lunch. i"m always in the mood for a trip your way.


  12. The Presidents really do give the wall a unique feeling! I like the prim black you chose for the frames and the candlesticks.

  13. More prim eye candy to inspire us all! I especially like your wallpaper prints, Rondell. They remind me of Warren Kimble's artwork, which I love.

    Happy Mother's Day!
