Today we continue the Wedding Collection - a collection of crafts put together by the Creative Bride in our household.
For the table seating plan, the wedding stylist had offered us the use of a very sleek modern mirror on an ornate stand to post the table seating arrangements. It was very pretty but really not in keeping with the theme or style of the wedding at all. So Michaela set off to the thrift stores in search of something more vintage-looking. What she had in mind was a picture with an ornate frame.
Her search didn't yield the fancy frame she had hoped for but she did find a large, old print with a wooden frame that was in pretty good condition and at $5, it was a steal!
Armed with a can of metallic gold spray paint, she removed the print and the backing from the frame and spray painted it to tie it into the burgundy and gold theme.
All that was left to do was create a document with the seating arrangement on it, size it to fit the frame and have it printed at Officeworks.
Voilà! Finally, a project that came in under budget and that took
under half an hour to complete! And although it was a lot less ornate
than she had hoped for, it still worked perfectly well with the theme.
Watch out for another post in the Wedding Collection series next week.
'Til next time.....
