A Frame with an Agricultu'R'al Feel

This is the newest frame I added to the gallery wall in our living room.
Originally I was going with all black frames, then I tried some pine frames, and after I painted this old frame white I was inspired to add it to the gallery. I was looking for a creative way to frame the black letter 'R' and asked K, our almost 15 year old son, to cut some of his extra rabbit wire to the size of the frame.
This idea is not original to me but I really like the industrial/agricultural feel the rabbit cage wire gives to my gallery. A staple gun made quick work of attaching the wire to the frame.
A simple piece of twine ties the black 'R' to the rabbit wire.
I think it looks so much better framed.

On Thursday I shared the living room gallery work-in-progress as it was at Christmas,

and the Feed and Seed sign I painted. I still want to get a bigger frame for the photo of K's prize winning 4-H calf and I might rearrange a few things, but the wall is starting to come together.
The cost for this project was around $8 (yard sale frame $1, letter R $7 at a local decor shop, rabbit cage wire -free, and paint we had on hand.) This gallery wall is taking a long time to come together but I am enjoying the process.

  6. That's cute. I have a big R and the number 8 on our gallery wall. They would really stand out if I did it your way. I have to look and see if there is room.

  7. That was a clever idea to frame the "R" that way. The rabbit wire definitely lends itself to the feel you're going for.

  9. I've done this look before as well and I love the look of wire in a frame. You could even add clippies to it! They are so versatile. andrea@townandprairie

  17. I really like your framed "R"! It really makes a statement now. Good job-love that you used wire from your rabbits. I had to smile at that because it reminded me of the rabbits our son had when he was a kid. They came to a tragic end when their door didn't get latched all the way, but he sure enjoyed them while they lasted.
