DecoArt Framed Monogram

Last week if you recall I shared the start of a project I was making for my son and soon to be DIL - if you missed it you can find the first part here: DecoArt Americana DECO Chalk Finish Wedding Art.

I have finished it and here's how it turned out....

It's a whopping 18x22" and is quite impressive in person!

I'm going to place it on the gift table at the wedding unwrapped so everyone can see it.
I hope that they like it.

If you recall or take a look at the previous steps I shared I had painted the entire frame and added the blue harlequin.  After all of the paint had dried I went back and sanded the front of the frame - Black only - and distressed it a bit with sand paper.  It make the blue & white background look very crisp against the distressed black.

I then glued on 2 types of black trim to finish off the frame.  A round 1/2" cord around the outside and a flat braided trim around the opening.  Popped in my artwork (Thank you Tracey for figuring out the PS stuff!!!) and ta-da!  Wedding gift ready to give.
