F*R*I*E*N*D*S! Why you ask?? Confession: I. am. Obsessed.
I own every season/episode! Crazy? Maybe. Perfection? Yes! (“Because for me.. gum is perfection!”) Okay, I’ll stop. 😉
See that amazing, fun, bright, colorful, french painting behind Rachel… ahem… I mean Jennifer Aniston? This hung in Monica and Rachel’s apartment on the hit sitcom FRIENDS! Do you watch FRIENDS? Do you looooove it?? Phoebe refers to this as “the french poster with nothing coming out of it”. Any idea why? If you do know, we can be best friends forever!
Since as long as I can remember, I have LOVED that painting and thought that one day I should have it in my home.
That day has come!
My sweet hubby bought me the print for my birthday! SAWEET!!!! One of the zillion reasons I LOVE that man!
The issue arose… How on Earth/where can I get a GIANT and I mean GIANT frame for it and not cost me a gillion dollars!?!? It is 48×52″ for crying out loud! I searched Michaels, HL, Walmart… and even with coupons, it was gonna cost me… well… A LOT!!!
Then I thought, why don’t I just make a frame?? So I loaded up my little ones and headed to the Home Depot for some supplies.
I started with some particle board cut to size of my painting
Then, my partner in crime Savannah and I Mod Podged it onto the board! I was nervous about putting the Mod Podge on the paper but it worked really well.
Then I took some basic moulding like this…
Spray painted it black with this…
….but I used a Satin sheen. I’m not a fan of flat paint. I hardly EVER use it.
Then Savannah’s dear husband nailed the moulding to the board with his handy dandy nail gun and it was done!
So… this has become my inspiration for my living/ room decor. I love the colors and pretty much, well everything about it! The only issue is trying to make the rest of the space as awesome as this picture! 🙂 Any ideas/input would be great!!!!
Jouets means “Toys” in French or so I am told. This was painted to be a sign for a french toy store. I AM IN L.O.V.E. 🙂 Let’s count how many times I’ve said “love” in this post. Whoops!
Are you a FRIENDS fan?? Do you like how my picture turned out?? I don’t hate comments – hehe! 🙂
