Monogram Monday - Wood & Burlap Frame Monogram

After making a button monogram for my son's room, I had to make a monogram for my little girls room!

I made this one using a clearance frame from Homegoods (yeah, that says $3.50!), some burlap (of course), spray paint (what else?), and a letter W (they were out of M's).

First, I removed the glass and backing from the frame and spray painted it, along with the letter M (or W).  Light pink, 4-5 light coats.

Then I cut two layers of burlap 1/2" larger than the frame backing, and just put it back together.  I didn't glue it because I have craft commitment issues, but I'm working on it.  I did glue the M (or W!) on and took some sandpaper to it.

Super easy, the hardest part was waiting for the paint to dry!
