Frame within a frame

I completed a fun project to showcase my girls pictured together. I wanted to be sure I tied in the fabric I used, together with the rest of the room. I love how it all came together!
Simple, economical and cute!
The frame I found at a local thrift shop for $2. It had an awful looking picture in it but the frame was a great condition. After spray painting in black, I lightly sanded the edges to give it a light, chippy feel. Luckily, the frame was already painted gold {yikes!}, so the sanding affect was easy to acheive.
The fabric was a piece left over from my big livingroom window curtains from IKEA! I stapled it to the back of the fabric and the last little bit of the fabric made some rolled flowers to add to the corner of the small frame.

The smaller inside frame I picked up from the Dollar Store. Picking my favourite pic of my girls together was a tough one and I wanted just the right one. The frame was so easy to hang, as there was already a small hook in place that was already centered.
You know the wood text you can pick up from the local Dollar Store or craft store? Painted black and hot glued to the frame, she is finished!
