Hi Jane, I really liked the frame with the texture look. Have fun at the lake even though you have cleaning to do. It is just the change of scenery can make a big difference. I hope you take pictures to share on your vacation. We have had storms the last couple of days and today it was very hot and muggy. We are still at 83 degrees. Enjoy your weekend. Hugs from Your Missouri Friend.

Shannon @ Cozy Home Scenes said...

I've never seen that paint before, but will have to keep my eyes open for textured paint now. Can't wait to see what you have planned for your frames. Another craft project, maybe?

Hope you have a good time at the lake and have a wonderful weekend!

Paula said...

Enjoy your weekend at the lake. I hope you get many chores done but also have a little bit of relaxing time, too.

Your frames look great. You'll have to share them again when they are hanging.

Olive Cooper said...

Well done Jane. The frames were fun and turned out pretty. I am not a DIY girl either. I did spray paint some sad looking candleabras turquoise and they all sold on consignment. Might have to keep buying that color of spray paint. Have fun at the lake. I cannot keep either of my houses clean. I do not know how you do it. CC who is twenty but a mama's girl is keeping me busy now that she is home for five weeks.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Have fun up at the lake, Jane! I know you've been itching to get up there! : ) Love your frames project and I'm looking forward to see what you do to the tray. The weather here has been so humid, with rain and thunderstorms on occasion, but it certainly isn't cooling things off. And it certainly isn't doing anything for my hair!

Theresa said...

LOVE the frames! Great job! LOVE a line of flip-flops, gotta have them in every color!

Enjoy your weekend my friend, HUGS!

Bliss said...

Why is it we always take pretty pj's on trips? I always buy myself a new pair to bring along.

ℳartina @ Northern Nesting said...

Jane those frames look great, can't wait to see what you do with them! Have a great time at the lake!

Sue said...

I am going to have to check out that MS paint, Janie. Looks like an interesting texture. Have a good trip and enjoy walking around in what I still call "thongs." LOL xo Sue

Linda Chapman said...

Your frames look great! It was a nice touch to distress them a bit!

You have been a busy girl! I will be back home next week and hope to get some housework done.....it is my therapy!

Enjoy the lake! Take pics!

Jeanne @ Collage of Life said...

I love how you keep yourself busy Jane...smart woman!
The last shot is perfect! Best wishes for a lovely weekend!!

Hi Jane!
I would never think to use texture paint on a frame, but I love what you did, will keep it in mind when I start another project, thanks for the tip. Hope you are enjoying your weekend, and the lake house, also, your unmentionables are too cute!
Big hugs, from me to you,
Maureen xx

Lynn said...

Love your music. Oh that Rob! sigh.

I do believe you ARE a do it yourselfer! Pretty frames! I am a fisher person too, at times. We live near Lake Shasta and have a boat, so...

Gretchen said...

I love the way those frames turned out. I may have to try that paint. Have a wonderful and safe trip!

Gretchen

Lori said...

Love your new flip flops ~ I decided I need pink now too so Old Navy will be on my to do list this week! What are you going to do with your frames ~ are they for the lake or home?? Do tell Janie :o) Hope you are having a great week-end and that your weather is cooperating with your plans.

Gypsy Heart said...

You did great with the picture frames! I've looked and looked at that paint. I'm wanting some of the "glitter" or metallic ~ just haven't decided which one.

Hope you have a great weekend! Don't work too hard ~

Pat
P.S. I LOVE to fish!

Hope all is well and lovely at the lake........had a lot of rain and thunderstorms here this weekend!

Great job on the frames.
Hugs - Mary

Kelly said...

Your frames turned out neat. It's always fun to work on a project when you're bored. My husband fly fishes too! How about that. Me? Can't stand fishing of any kind AT ALL. I don't understand why everyone likes it so much. That's just me I guess. I guess you either love it or don't. Ha! I'm a flip flops gal too. Can't beat the freedom. You've got a HUGE collection of flipflops! Guess I need to check out Old Navy then.

Pondside said...

By now you're having a good time at the lake, I'm sure.
Your creative side is pretty good, Jane! Those frames look very nice, and I look forward to seeing the tray.

Betsy said...

glad the sun finally came out in Florida! :)

love the basket of flip flops!

Ocean Breezes and Country Sneezes said...

French aye!!! Too funny!

I wish I could wear flip-flops, but I can't stand that thing between my toes! LOL!!! I try, but I don't last very long . . . and I love how they look too!

Love the frames!

susan@avintagefarmwife said...

Your frames are very nice, Jane. Hope you had a great day at the lake today! It is HOT down in our part of the state. We had to turn on the air-I hate that!

GLENDA CHILDERS said...

I was alone earlier this month, too, and did some painting. Nice.

awal.ny said...

Teaching the dogs French, hehehe. Did you wander around the house with your paint brush in hand looking for something else to paint. Have fun.

Stacey said...

Love flip flops too and Old Navy always has some cute ones! Super job with the frames. Are you officially a diyer now?:-). Have a lovely week! XX

SmilingSally said...

I like that driftwood grey color; it's almost blue, isn't it?

Thanks for sharing, Jane.

Have a great time cleaning. LOL

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

Thank you for this product review. It sounds fantastic!

lynn said...

hope your trip is a great one, jane! love those frames!!

Marla and Steve said...

I've got to look for that paint. Sounds interesting to have a bit of texture and the color is awesome.

You and me both girlfriend with the flipflop collection. I keep a basket by the door. So many colors, and not enough feet. I always wonder why I love them so much when our summers here in Oregon are so short so I don't even get to wear them for very long. I think it's the old California habits still hanging on.

Sue (Someones Mom) said...

Look at all those flip flops...love them! I can't walk in them for hours the way I used to. I need a bit more support if I'm going to be on my feet a long time. I really love all those jammie colors!!

I have a couple things I want to paint...I like the idea of the textured look. You did a great job. Love the color combo.

So wish I had a lake home to go to on weekends...I know it is more work, but it sounds so great. We did have one when I was a kid, in fact we moved out there for the summer and my dad drove back and forth to work. Those were the days!

CAS said...

Your frames look terrific, Jane. I hope you have a wonderful time at your lake house & don't work too hard!
~CAS~

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Great job on the frames Jane, they look so charming!
I hope you had a great lake house trip, sounds good to me...I love your lake house!
Are you going back to Asheville?
Have a wonderful week friend,
Cindy

Nancy's Notes said...

Great job on the picture frames! Have a great trip and enjoy your time away! Fishing? Love to fish too!

Lynne (lynnesgiftsfromtheheart) said...

Hi darling, love the frames, what treasures to have from your dad and you've decked them all out in your style. Kitty on the bed is adorable. I know you're going to have a great trip, wish I could hide away in your suitcase and go with you.. hugs ~lynne~

Pam - @diy Design Fanatic said...

You've caught the crafting/diy bug! Great job on your project. It looks great!

PAT said...

My eyes went right to the flip flops. I would live in those all year round if it was possible!:-)

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

Jane, The frames look great! Have a fun time at the lake.

Yvonne @ StoneGable said...

I think your Lake house sounds soooo romantic! I would love to have a place to go all summer long! I am looking forward to many posts about your time there!
I LOVE flip flops too!

Lou Cinda @ Tattered Hydrangeas said...

I love that paint! I will have to check that out! See? I knew you would be lake bound! We talked about going this weekend but it is supposed to rain here....bummer!
I have a TON of things I need do do around my house...I have no time for rain!

Enjoy!
