That is absolutely amazing. I hope you have a wonderful old picture to put in it. I think I like the finished result best as well.
I just bought an old frame at an estate sale to put on the wall in my craft room to display my necklaces so they don't get tangled in containers. I hope cardboard covered in vintage fabric will be sturdy enough to pin up the necklaces. Have you ever used an old frame for that kind of thing?
No, I can't say that I have, but sounds like a great idea. When you get it done you should take a picture of it and submit to my website. You could win the drawing of an item I'm giving away at the end of the month. http://www.trash2treasure4you.net This is the item I am giving a way for the month of October.
I saw jewelry displayed in picture frames in an antique store but can't remember what they used as the "pincushion". I am thinking it was probably corkboard but I thought a couple of sheets of cardboard covered in fabric would suit me just fine.
This is going to have to be a winter project because my garden has finally decided to produce everything all at the same time since the temps have started being tolerable.
I will try to remember to post a picture of my "picture" when I get it finished.
