So, you guys remember my Pottery Barn airplane knockoff, right?
Well, I knew I wanted it to go in the dining room, but since it's long and skinny, I decided to add a little bit to it so it would make more of a statement.
Before I left California, I had my dad cut out some moulding to make a frame that would be 6" bigger than the panels. I stained it a polyurethaned it the night before the moving truck came! Evidently I really like stressing myself out.
Once I got here to New Jersey, I used corner brackets to hold the frame together. Originally, I was going to use brown packaging paper for the background, but then I decided I should use something a little more heavy duty, so I opted for burlap.
I am so glad I went with the burlap because I LOVE the texture it adds!
So, it's totally overcast today and my dining room already barely gets any natural light. It looks like I took theses pictures with flash. Boooo!
