Here's what I did today-
I took this old, dusty frame...
and this old, lucky penny...
and after giving the frame a good cleanup and several coats of silver paint, put the two together and ended up with this:
I got that penny in Las Vegas when Rob and I first met. I guess it really was lucky, because we ended up getting married a year later.
I like having it out where we can see it, and it and it's spiffed up frame are looking so cute in their new spot:
I decided to use bright blue scrapbook paper as the backing for the penny. I like the little pop of color it's giving this area.
I also like how it ties in with the little bit of blue over in the next room:
