CrabShell DIY of the day

So happy with today’s framing project!

I got this painting years ago from a street artist in San Fran.
So imagine my heartbreak when the original fell and cracked to pieces. And any paint luvah knows how much the frame means!

So after searching high and low with some pretty steep prices, my eyes lit when this just turned up, on a random trip to Michael’s.
So perfect. With bamboo carvings etched in to bring out the watercolor.

And the cost? $11.99. Kismet.

  1. Very nice. I have found two styles at Michael’s that I really like and use time and time again – although I think they just discontinued one of them. 😦

    • Thank u! Michael’s can be so ‘hit or miss’ sometimes. But this one was tucked behind plainer, pricier ones. I may have started dancing a little right there. Can’t remember 😉
