I was browsing Pinterest the other night and came across this cute frame from West Elm.  I clicked the link to see if it was still available.  No, it isn't.  Bummer.  I actually liked the black and white graphic front.


Well guess what, I can make my own.  

I had one of these wooden frames from Michael's in my craft stash.


 I gave it a couple coats of white paint.


You can see here where I used a ruler and drew the lines like the original frame.  I was sure to shade the areas that would get paint so I wouldn't confuse myself.
I painted the shaded areas with black.  I painted free hand with no tape.  When it was dry, I gave it a coat of mod podge to seal everything in.  It also gave the frame a little sheen.  It is the perfect frame to put a photo of two of my favorite people.


The black and white pattern works for this little table.


How about a side by side?  Such a cheap and simple project.

You knocked off anything lately?
