The first week-or-so of February has been gone in a flashy blur for me, but here we are, I remembered and even managed to get a finish done in time for the second check-in of Rachel's wonderful Fully Finished Gallery! Well, technically, Felix did the finishing, but I did some of the work too.
A week ago, I went to a flea market, which was a bit of a disappointment (because I guess most of the sellers only came in on Saturday, and most of the ones who *were* there Friday evening were already packing up at 5:30! But at least I did find the one thing I really came for, and that was a super cool frame for 'For Every Problem'. The seller said something about 'Art Noveau' but I don't really know about these things. I do think it's a pretty good fit though, both in size and colour!
It's old enough that taking out the old picture was a bit of work, but then I turned it over to Felix, he did his magic, and voilá!
I think I wanna bring this one to my office and put it on the wall there. Seems like a very fitting saying for an IT person, doesn't it? Very pleased with how it turned out!
Looks great! Well done!
It's superb, the perfect frame
Antique frames seem to do a very effective job.
You found a nice product in a short time.
Nice finish, great to found the perfect match for our stitchings and flea market is such a great idea! xxx
Hello Leonore: This is a beauty of a finish, a perfect frame.
Lets us know if you get fun comments at work if you hang it there.
I love Flea Markets, you can find the best things for inexpensive.
Your new frame looks perfect, Leonore, and it will fit right in at the office! Great find at the flea market :)
Beautiful finish! What a funny quote!
Nice finish. Like the sentiment.
It’s a fabulous frame and perfect for this design. I’d say more Art Deco than Nouveau but what do I know?
Perfect frame for the saying. Lovely work!
Thank you for Felix's entry into this month's FFG SAL! The frame is perfect and was definitely a lucky find. I hope it looks good in your office.
