What Can You Make With a $1 Frame and Some Chicken Wire?


When I transformed my master bedroom I wanted a unique way to display and find my earrings. Using a yard sale frame, some metallic paint and chicken wire this DIY project went from boring to fab!

The frame was $1 at a yard sale and I bought it because I loved the intricate design. I wanted a burnished gold look for the frame to blend in with the rest of the bedroom and I also needed to paint over the canvas strip around the inside of the frame.

I used Modern Masters Gold Rush (semi opaque) ME658 for the first coat over the entire frame. I just used a disposable foam craft brush to apply.

I then used a coat of Modern Masters ME221 Warm Silver (opaque) and this worked much better!

      This type of chicken wire is called hardware cloth and can be found in Home Depot, Lowes as well as stores that sell farm supplies, such as farmer's coop.

    I wish they had printed the answer. That was my question also. What is a glove mold? I'm 75 and have never heard of it b/4.

      It's not chicken wire. It is called hardware cloth. You can buy it with different sizes of squares depending on your need.

    I have a "thing" for frames that drives my hubby crazy. Lol. Thank you for the inspiration. I'm going to make mine with metal screening and hang it on hinges so I can get to the back to take my posts off. Plus I'm going to spray paint the screening yo match my walls.
