Abandoned Project ~ Continued

This was one of my abandoned project for more than a year. After I have done the first part, then I found out I was pregnant. So I abandoned this project and now that Justin is out, its time to continue and finish up the project.

The idea came when we wanted to get some nice art deco for our house. But we went and look around , either its tooo expensive OR we have no idea what that art is trying to tell us. (yeah la.. u know the colour splash here and there and you want me to pay for that ah? Jayden also can colour like that...) So I told Big C, nevermind let me do something that we will all appreciate and look at it very often.

So I drop by a walk in shop in DU and got Justin's pic printed on a tarpauline and then headed over to the hardware shop to buy some wood. Those flers just can't cut the wood straight. But I make use of whatever I have and assemble everything and everything went crooked.

Then our door guy came to fix our very crooked door ( old houses in these area got crooked doors- we need specialist to come and fix the door). I tell you.. he looked like this fler...


Eh dream On la.... he looked like this fler more!

Muahahahahah

Since he was here, I asked him to pinjam-ed me his saw so that I can redo the frame and make it more sturdy. This uncle is really nice, not only that he pinjamed me his saw he even taught me how to make exact 45˚ corner. Dun play play .. his saw very sharp. Satu kali move the thing patah..


You need to put the corners so that the frame will stay intact. You can see its senget without the corners...


And then I joint the corners to the frame with nails and then placed the tarpauline photo on the frame. I forgot to buy thumbtacks so I used stapler


And the final result...


It might not be perfect (in fact slightly senget cos we need to put the pictures really high up on staircase wall and then we didn't have the right tools and cny is round the corner..so just hantam la) and it might not be so beautiful that makes u go WAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. But we like it, cos it relates to us. Something that we will appreciate and look at everyday when we walk up and down the staircase.

P/S: If you wanna make one for yourself, go to Ikea and buy the frame at Rm15. I got to know about the frame AFTER I completed this project. But its slightly smaller than mine, Ikea's is 1.5ft x 1.5ft.
