My daughter has a lot of hairbows. They are all in a cute pink box. Or supposed to be anyway. I would love to say that the pairs of these bows are together in the box and always easily accessible. But that would be a lie.
I saw this idea and was immediately excited to make one of my own! Here's to hoping for more organization.
I went to the local thrift shop and found a frame. I wanted one big enough to fit a lot of bows. I looked for a really gaudy, gobby, textured frame, but this was the best I could find. Either people are hanging on to their ugly frames, or the majority of frames being made now are more simple!
I removed extra staples, etc or anything that may be on the back or center of the frame, and spray painted it white. I only did one coat, because I liked how I could still see a little of the gold peeking through.
Here is a close-up of the frame. It has decent texture, and I do like the darker color underneath.
I probably should have stopped here--I think I like this look the best, but I decided to add a little dark glaze to it to antique it a bit more.
Those little nails they come with are really little so I used a bigger nail to make a hole, then I pounded in those small nails. (I'm not very handy, I know)
