One neat thing about wordpress (or I guess blogs and websites in general) is that you can see what search engine words led people to your website. This can be helpful in learning what topics people are interested in.
What I found was the majority of search terms used for my site involved thrift stores and decorating with thrift store items. Since I just so happen to love making over thrift store items, I thought it would be fun to do more of it!
I found these little guys at a thrift store and liked them.
I don’t cross stitch so I’m not up on the lingo. I assumed they were some sort of frames for a cross stictching project since they had glass but all I could find about them is that they are cross stitching hoops. I couldn’t find anything online showing these hoops with glass.
If anyone has any idea about these, let me know because now I’m really curious. Most likely they are a rare antique worth millions and now I’m very rich.
Despite my windfall, I decided to carry out my project. To begin, I removed the glass and painted the rims white.
Once that dried, I picked out a fabric (I went with this lobster print) and used the glass to trace the fabric to size.
Then I just glued the fabric to the glass with the print side facing out.
And put the glass back into the frame and reattached the screw.
Then they were ready to hang!
They made the perfect decoration over my son’s bed, just in time for summer.
Now, on to the next thrift store makeover 🙂
