trust in the magic of new beginnings! I am selling the last of my 'blank' wire frames - when they're gone...they're gone! The words / quotes as seen in the photos are examples of how these can be customized - the blank frames for sale will only be painted/prepped and ready for you to personalize.
it is holiday and transition time - high school and college graduations, new jobs and relocations, holiday card giving and calendar time - and these chicken wire frames make the perfect gift! is it a frame, or a jewelry holder, or a memory board or a place to hang your tiara...
similar projects using old picture frames can sometimes make for a very heavy product, and often leaves the wire exposed, to scratch you and your walls.
this chix wire frame is crafted to be lightweight, to fit anywhere in your home, college dorm, or new apartment (inside or out) and to protect your walls and your fingers from the pointy edges of the cut wire! it is made from layers of reclaimed yardsticks, chicken wire and velvety chalk paint.
three open frames of yardsticks are sanded and painted, with a layer of chicken wire pulled taut and sandwiched in the middle of the frame stack. the entire frame is then sanded and painted and distressed.
one final coat of wax is applied for a creamy smooth finish.
the finished chix wire frame measures 19 x 19 inches, is a lean 0.75 inches thick, and it weighs in at 0.5 lbs!
