diy {plexi glass frame}

Contest winners are: Lauren -” if you pick me as the winner, i’ll be you a big ol’ kiss and squeezy!”….thanks for the offer, but I’ll pass πŸ™‚

amanda torres – “I just got a little squeezy from my teeny weeny.”

UPDATE: Contest is now closed. Julie A. has the last counting comment.

I recently acquired the Graffiti art from Design Aglow…you’ll be seeing it pop up a lot on my pictures now…just so much fun.

Here’s a picture Shannon took of Chris & I…with a little graffiti.

I have an old French frame I’ve been wanting to use in the house and didn’t want to add glass to it. I also have a super cute poster that reminds me of my son’s kindergarten teacher – who I adore. I thought I’d hang the poster and frame next to the door to the boy’s room, but I also knew I needed to protect the poster from flying balls and LEGO men. Thus was born my custom plexi-glass frame using my Graffiti Art….

Step 1: Decide how you want the design of your frame to look. I wanted mine bigger than the actual poster. I drew mine up on Photoshop, but this isn’t necessary…just know in your head what you want. You can use any type of design….

Step 2: Your supplies – 2 sheets of “plastic glazing” (thin plexi glass), your poster, sharpie marker, paint, small paint brush, easy tack adhesive, scrapbooking paper (if you want)

Step 3: Print out the design you want on your frame. If you want the paint on the inside of the glass you will need to ‘flip’ the printout before painting it. Trace the design onto the plexi glass using a fine point sharpie.

Step 4: Paint over the marker lines with craft paint and a small brush. You can leave the painted side facing out (but be aware the paint could get scratched off) or you could use it facing the inside (which is what I did….this also makes the paint look shiny).

Step 5: Use Easy-Tack (or another adhesive) to adhere the poster to the back piece of glass. I also wanted to add some scrapbooking paper to make the poster stand out since it was going on a wall with yellow paint. I used the Easy-Tack (acid free) to stick the poster to the scrapbooking paper, then the scrapbooking paper to the glass. I also used just a small sliver of double sided tape on the bottom to keep the two pieces of plexi-glass together (it is hidden under paint).

My finished product!

  • Joy Fisher - Here’s my new favorite summer drink from Gweneth Paltrow’s website GOOP!

    Agave*-Sweetened Lemonade

    Agave syrup is the sweet nectar of the Agave plant. It is full of minerals and has a low glycemic index, making it far healthier than white sugar. Serve up a tall, cool glass of this lemonade and enjoy without the downward spiral sugar crash afterwards.

    SERVES: 4
    TIME: 5 minutes

    1/2 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice
    1/2 cup light agave syrup*
    1 quart of water
    a few lemon slices for garnish, if you like
    Mix everything together, adding a bit more of any ingredient, if necessary, so it’s just the right mix of sweet and tart for your taste.

    (*I’ve substituted honey in a pinch!)
