Sometimes I gotta "feel" it.

Ya know those days when you don't "feel" like wearing the outfit you've picked out? Or something's just not right with your hair? Or "insert-situation-where-you-can't-put-your-finger-on -what's-wrong?"

That's what happened with me and these burlap canvases. They just didn't "feel" right with the things I wanted to do with them. So I put them to the side. 

Until tonight. 

I saw Funky Junk Donna's picture frame post, and a light bulb went off. 

I know what to do with those canvases! 

Make them into picture frames! I wrapped jute around the canvases and placed a picture inside. These are engagement pics that have been unframed since we got them. {Yes, we celebrated three years in August.}

On the wall in our newly decorated guest bathroom. Reveal coming soon!
