Altered art for the kitchen


I hope everyone who visits this blog had a good Bank Holiday break, we had a lovely few days off and had a brilliant meal out with the family on the Monday. I have been painting the kitchen for months now...it's not that its a big kitchen but it's actually quite nice to go slowly with the radio on (like proper decorators and builders) so I have been tarting up my cross stitched picture frames to make a sort of european cafe effect. I used to live in Munich and my favourite cafe used to have allsorts of knic nacs on the walls...I think I quite like the finished frames, I don't think Colin is quite sure if he likes them. Anyway, I have a new rug to go under the table which I am quite excited about (I really must get out more...I used to get excited about new shoes, bags etc) and tonight I will post some photos of the finished frames.Once again, any hints and tips would be gratefully received.
