Scripture Frame...

Normally you would find all my DIY projects on my craft blog, however due to reasons I am completely unaware of, my craft blog has completely disappeared.  While I attempt to locate said missing blog, you can catch all my craft, cooking, refurbing, repurposing and creativity here.

Now that we got that out of the way, back to the blog at hand:

One of my favorite decorated rooms in our house would have to be our main bathroom.  I have had the decor the same for years because I truly love the colors, flow and feel.  But this past week I noticed a blaring empty spot.  Since the decor was originally set for our seminary apartment, and our currently rental is a good deal larger, the dreaded "empty spot" was bound to happen.
Does that just bother you as much as it does me?  The poor "J" seem's so lonesome all by it self.  After a short period of contemplation I decided I would really like to have a scripture memory board in the empty spot.  In order to make the memory board I needed to be sure I used items I had on hand and those items needed to match the current pictures I had originally made when I decorated the bathroom (shown below).

After hunting through the craft room I found a picture frame with glass I had purchased from a yard sale for .50 cents.  The frame was a dark dark cherry wood, but after a bit of spray paint and a little smudging to antique it, I ended up with this:

OOOO, AHHHH so pretty!  After a short period of admiring I pulled out the fabric I had used when I made the bird pictures above.  I cut out a coordinating piece and attached it to cardboard with fabric glue.
You can see the original frame color as I decided not to waist paint on the back.  Once the fabric was attached, I assembled the frame and added a scripture with a dry erase marker.  
I L-O-V-E my little scripture frame and once it took its place in the empty spot I was down right giddy!

The camera didn't quite pick up the white (booo for bad yellow lighting!), but it does stand out very well!  The best part, I found a pack of dry erase markers, 6 total, at staples for $1!  I love the fact that I will be able to change the scripture each week to match what we are studying.  

So how about you, have you made anything fun this week?
