I love creative challenges. There is so much fun in reinventing and improving on an already existing item. This time around though, there is a whole lot more on the line! My challenges have been for myself usually, or for my girls. My girls are always thrilled with the end result, they are usually artistically involved and giving me great input throughout. This time it’s for our son and his bride to be.
Here is the idea….. The backdrop for the ceremony.
Thank you pinterest. I’ve even got the bug, free crochet, needlepoint, cross stitching patterns, and recipes. One problem though, before you know it hours have passed by in what feels like minutes! Yikes, it’s a black hole, lol.
Here are the great doors we found at a salvage yard…..
I need to clean them up, but they are the perfect color. This saves me time, a load of time! Steven carefully detached the frame to save and he made me four supports for the doors to stand free and clear safely. They are sanded, painted, and ready for the big day. Steven’s supports look almost identical to the “idea” doors.
So far we are on track. I have gathered all the supplies to decorate, only I have to wait until the afternoon before to create the floral spray. I will definitely post the finished piece for you all to grade. Jury is still out, we’ll see if this is indeed a slam dunk….. Cyn
