The large picture I have on the wall in our dining room is magic. Or so the kids thought when it kept changing. :)
When I originally made this picture from a sheet of MDF, I framed it with some strips of pine which I then stained a nice contrasting shade a brown.
So it usually looks like this ...
Then at Christmas it magically looked like this! I had the brilliant idea as there was already a frame, I could cut a piece of MDF to fit inside the frame and tah-da, I had a "removable" Christmas sign. You can see that I cut the corners off so I can easily take the insert out. I added a bit of blue tac to the back of the insert to keep it from falling out.
So for Easter, I flipped the MDF insert over and created my Easter sign.
I decided I wanted to create a wood panel effect so I dry brushed some panels in with white paint.
Then I decided on my wording and some pictures and transferred them on and painted them in with black paint.
Finally I gave it all a rough sand to create an aged effect.
I'm really happy with how it turned out. :)
The basket on the table is also a new addition. I got it at yard sale a while back. I've fit my vintage milk bottles inside and then placed a rose in each bottle. I plan to switch the roses out for tulips closer to Easter. :)
Hope you like my "magical" new sign. :)
