#259...framed metal letter

My friend Laura needed a small piece of artwork in a squarish frame to help complete a vignette of wall hangings that we planned to group on a small wall in her bedroom. I found this pink beauty in my pile of thrift store frames.

We decided to create a monogram art piece using a metal house letter. I ordered this little metal "T"
I took apart the pink framed print, spray painted the wood frame in a metallic bronze, and cut a piece of foam board to fit inside the frame. I wrapped the foam board in a scrap of printed linen and fitted it into the frame. (I discarded the glass) Next, I glued the metal letter to the linen covered board using Contact Cement.
