This is the second of the small projects I worked on this week. Aside from the pretty carving detail, it really was a mess and was falling apart.
For a small project, it took more time than I expected. The entire frame had to be taken apart and reglued; then, because it's so large, it still didn't want to stay together so it was reinforced with "L" brackets on the back.
It was painted with some leftover HM chalk paint and waxed with APC's dark wax to bring out the detail. The chicken wire was added for fun and to make it more useful. Now it can be used like a bulletin board, holding just about anything you want or as many things as you want (it's all about the clothes pins!).
