Moving in a Still Frame
Today's Tuesday Tutorial post on the October Afternoon blog features step-by-step instructions for how to assemble this frame, by yours truly. It's kind of a landmark moment for me, as I rarely venture into the world of altered projects. When it came to this project, however, I sort of fell naturally into it, since I had been piecing it together in my head for some time. When I held the new Farmhouse collection in my hands, I knew that it was finally time to attempt this project. My sweet husband even contributed to the effort, generously playing errand boy by locating the frame, spray paint, and screws for me, and making sure that I did not inadvertently take my own life with the screwdriver. His steady hands definitely earned their guest spot in the tutorial.
Since the post went live this morning, I've received such positive feedback, and I've even seen the frame popping up on Pinterest here and there. So not only is it a kick that the frame actually exists outside of my head now, but it's also affirming to know that so many people seemed interested in actually trying this. It's not overly ambitious or difficult, and it can easily be adapted to fit one's personal style. The tutorial just provides the framework. Har har.
