    What type of glaze did you use for the antique look?  I love the way your frames came out and I'm interested in something similiar since I'm doing a vintage glam theme.  Was the spray paint white or silver?

      The glaze was Bear I believe from Home Depot. It's actually called furniture glaze and then you choose whatever paint color you want to add in, I went witha darker grey color  and just bought a "tester" size of the paint because I didn't need too much.  You mix a half and half of the paint/glaze together to create your mixture. 

      The spray paint I used was plain white.

        I LOVE your monogram!! Great job on it!  I haven't attempted ours yet.  Did it take you a long time to do?

            Not really, I actually have about four inceptions of the monogram, I just played around until I loved it.  I swear Photoshop makes things 1000 times easier though too!  I used to used publisher, and I think that could work quite well too if you do not know PS.

                I love your vintage themed ideas!  Especially the card box and frames.  Everthing looks great!

                  I love your vintage look! I'm going to follow your planning closely because we have similar taste! Is Jysk a Canada store? I've been searching for a treasure chest for sooo long! I also have had my eye out at the local dollar trees for picture frames with that baroque styling. Nothing great yet :( I really think your STD should be featured on a blog. I super love that photo and your colors!

                      Hey gals who were looking to use my logo, I know most are not versed in Photoshop, so I took out all of my personalization, and I think if you save this as a photo, and then open in a word doc, you should be able to use Word Art to put wrapping text up above, and then add your names/date with text boxes pretty easily.   For anyone that wanted to know, the cursive (Scriptina Pro)I am using can be downloaded here:  Logo for BDWjpg
