|Cleaning this frame before painting revealed some beautiful detail that had been hidden under layers of dirt and grime.|
|Love the tiny bows and lattice work detail.|
|I use Annie Sloan chalk paint. The color is duck egg blue.|
|Painting part is complete. Now for the black wax.|
One of our customers named Krystal came into the store recently and was looking for a frame for a photo of her dog Finnegan who was one of the winners in the "Cutest Pet Contest". This event is held in Ottawa, Il. and the surrounding communities. People vote on the photo of their favorite dog (or cat) and the funds collected go into the making of a calendar. Each month has a photo of the animal that generated the most money. The photos are taken by none other then the fabulous Annette Barr. You can see more of her photography here. The proceeds go to Pet Project and you can visit this wonderful place here.
Finnegan is a 7 month Cardigan Welsh Corgi and Annette did a fabulous job of capturing this young pup. What a handsome guy. He's already participating and winning in dog shows and Krystal couldn't be prouder. I love how this wonderful duck egg blue frame looks with Finnegan's photo. I'm sure it will be displayed for all to see.
|Krystal is grinning ear to ear. Finnegan is quite the looker!|

|This large duck egg blue frame is one of my favorites. Just look at all that detail. The black wax does an excellent of bringing this kind of detail out!|
