My house lacks art. I’ve got a few cool pieces, but there are way more empty walls than there should be. Several years ago my mom gave me an oil painting of Jesus she got an auction for probably about $10. My mom’s always giving me stuff she bought at auctions. The painting is beautiful, but looks more like it belongs in a museum than my Ikea-filled house. Plus it’s got a big hole in it. However, since I was scared it may be worth like $60,000 and because it’s a picture of Jesus I never got rid of it. I’ve just been storing it, hauling it from home to home, attic to attic.
Well a couple of weeks it dawned on me that it’s in a really cool, big wooden frame which I could easily put to use. So the hubby and I went to Home Depot, bought a $6 piece of wood underlayment and went to work. Here’s the finished product, proudly displaying Proverbs 25:11:
We think it turned out pretty cool, especially since neither one of us is what you would call an artist. I wrote a how-to post if you’re interested in making your own custom artwork. So the frame may not hold a painting of Jesus anymore, but at least it’s still proclaiming the Word of God!
