birth announcement frame

When our niece was born, over 10 months ago, we received the cutest birth announcement in the mail.
How precious is that?  We got this when we were still staying at my parent's place, and I have been wanting to do something with it.  Originally, I was planning to get a very detailed white frame, but everytime I put the two together, it was just too much.

Then, one day when I was at the ReStore (my favorite place), I picked up this picture frame for $1.  
It sat in our garage for awhile until one day a few months ago when I was bored and decided to spray paint the frame blue.  I used the same spray paint on this frame that I used on Kiva's diy bow holder. I gave the frame a quick coat, let it dry, and then scuffed it up a bit with some sand paper.  
Then, I grabbed some scrap linen/burlap fabric leftover from the anniversary pillows I made last year, and attached them to the back piece of the frame using scotch tape (I used tape mostly because I didn't know if I would like it and didn't want to mess with glue).
Then, I added the birth announcement, and it looks super cute.  Now this lives on my desk.
And, the great thing about the placement of these frames, is that they block all the ugly cords on my desk.
And yes, that is a giant Central Perk mug on my desk! My mom found and bought it for me years ago.  It's way too big to drink from, so I think i'm going to plant a succulent in it.


  1. Hi, I'm Lara, from Spain, and I love your Friends mug! I'm visiting LA in 2 weeks, could you please tell where did you buy the mug, or a similar one? Thank you so much.

    1. My mom actually found this at a garage sale, so unfortunately I don't know where to get one! So sorry!

  2. You're lucky! Thank you so much for your answer :-)
