Another Upcycled Thrift Shop Valentine's Day Frame



An Upcycled Junky Love Sign www.organizedclutterqueen.blogspot.com
This up-cycle started with this reddish colored barn wood frame country sign that I purchased thrifting for $3.  The sign is painted on a thin piece of board.

I'm in the mood for "LOVE" today! I laid some junk out on the frame and sign board.   The junk includes:  a butter knife, pickle fork, rusty small plate, a curling iron, a door pull, an opener, a screw of some sort and not sure about the 3 hole piece.

I got some inspiration from Becky at Beyond the Picket Fence, and this random junk "Love" sign.

Then I painted the sign board light ivory.  The door pull stood too high on the board so two holes were drilled to bring it down flush.  The rest of the pieces were glued on the frame and/or sign board with E6000.

The frame already had a saw tooth hanger on the back.
