Burlap Framed Pear

*edited to add link to Make Your Monday @ Twice Remembered* & *Miz Rhoda Today's Thrifty Treasures @ Southern Hospitality*&*Metamorphosis Monday @ Between Naps on the Porch*&*Second Time Around @ A Picture is worth 1,000 Words*
I spotted this at a church rummage sale and thought what a fancy frame. I immediately thought of a project I've seen all over blogland recently. Did you see the price tag of 10 cents?


Trusty black spray paint to the rescue, left over burlap, hot glue gun and sacrifical faux pear ~ ah much better!

I just love the results!

Great makeover! I love the burlap and the yellow pear gives it just the right pop! Thrifty D├ęcor Chick did something like this but I think she used a black plate, the chunky frame looks nice!

Great colors, very retro; and yet with a vintage feel. I really like it.

Your metamorphasis looks great~ Does anyone else see the resemblance between his nose and the pear? :)

Turned out darling. And I thought frames for a buck was a good deal. You scored on that one. Frames are my weakness.
