Cherub Frame

Just thought I'd show you what I did with the cherub, and frame from my "Paint Play" post.





I gave the frame,




a wash of the same color brown as the cherub.








I didn't want them to match exactly, just compliment each other.




I didn't take pics, but the cherub is screwed in from the back of the frame.




Message board, chalkboard, mirror?  What do you think?

I love this project, it will look pretty no matter where you put it, so creative and sweet...

Dee said...

I like it just like that, without anything inside the frame. It's so pretty just like it is. Thank's for sharing, Dee from My Painted Stuff.

Irene said...

I agree with Dee. I like it the way it is. Hang a small bunting with words like "love" "peace" or whatever makes you happy.

Love it, Rosemary! I don't think you could go wrong with either a chalkboard or memo board.

Susan said...

Rosemary, the cherub frame looks great! I think it would nice as a chalkboard.

Any of the above would work well! Great pairing! Hugs, Leena

Donna said...

It's gorgeous, Rosemary! You make me want to start searching for cherubs! I think a memo board would be perfect!

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

So sweet.

Shabby chic Sandy said...

You could do anything with that and it would be perfect. Leaving it as is would be perfect too!

Oh Yes...all of the above! Lovely. Creative Hearts are Happy Hearts...

Great looking frame, love the cherub.
I'd hang it empty, it's so pretty just as it is.
Hugs,

The two items look perfect together Rosemary. I'd have a hard time too trying to decide what to use it as.

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

A mirror would be gorgeous....wonder if you could find a 'ghosty' one and have it cut to fit. And just as it is would be perfect too. Gorgeous Rosemary!! xo

Wouldn't this be pretty with a boxwood wreath hanging inside, or another picture frame, also would love an old scruffy mirror! Lovely, Rosemary!

It's so pretty just the way it is, but I think a chalkboard would be a nice contrast.

That is so pretty--I picture some beautiful roses hanging in there from a wire! lovely. Thank you for sharing. I just made some Spring collages posted on my blog--so ready for spring air.

I think it would be lovely as a burlap lined bulletin board.
