I had already sanded it down and painted it with a gorgeous shade of chalk effect paint called Damsel Chic - it's a sort of vintage pinky purple but a very subtle shade. I then got stuck on how I wanted to decorate it! I have some words cut from mdf so had a look through those and chose one that said 'Home' and painted it in the chalky paint - this shade is called Shadow and is a grey/pale blue. I lightly distressed the frame but not the 'Home' word and I waxed all of it.
The frame started off like this
I toyed with using a handcrafted flower but wasn't 100% happy with how it looked. So I put it to one side and every so often got it back out to try to think of something that really appealed to me! This morning I was cutting some of the mini bunting triangles and realised I had some flags that were just right for this frame so I made some bunting across the top of the frame.
This was a much better look than the flower that I was planning to use! I am really pleased with how it has turned out!
I love bunting and think it looks great anywhere!
