HeArt Designs by NYOIL "A-frame Sidewalk Sign" from repurposed picture frame.

AS i've mentioned before I've been doing a few project for Artina Qpdoll Sharpton and QPDoll Accessoires for her outside display during this upcoming Arts in the Heart event this Friday
This particular project I really love because it's something I wanted to do for a while.
I noticed these "A-frame" sidewalk signs are pretty common here in Augusta so I came up with a way to  modify the look and put that HeArt Designs spin on it.. with that QPDOLL appeal of course.

If you own a business and would like something like this (the frame will be different of course) then by all means hit me up. Prices vary with size and your particulars.
Here's the frame I found while antiquing with Artina Qpdoll Sharpton today. I forgot to take a picture of it before I started painting it ..and it's taped off so you can't see that it has this tan burlap material in the midsection of the frame that's currently masked off with blue painters tape

Here u can see more detail of the original frame. There were blue highlights in the frame.. i think it might have been painted some time ago

back to spray painting. Damn I'm so Hip Hop.. look at ya boy look like i'm about to Tag Up the 2 train back in the day!! 

Door sized Hinge. Only needed one.

in the meantime the frame was drying off

So now I needed to make the other side of the A-frame. So I used two spindles that I purchased from the Augusta Restore for very very very cheap.. lol.. and a 1x2" furring strip and connected them to make the back half of the A-frame. 

Making the connection with the frame. Once I got the location of the screws and everything sort of evened out. I had to take it apart because I don't want someone walking from behind this piece and seeing that it wasn't finished all the way through.
That's some slumming business.. so I have to paint the back.

So i set the other piece down

And now i'm spraying away.. Gano Grills eat ya heart out.. LOL.. spray painting master right here.. lol 

Now the paint is finished and dried. I reassembled it and now Artina Qpdoll Sharpton is doing the honors of unmasking the painters tape. (seeing as it was HER JOB to put the tape on .. i figured why not)

Another satisfied customer. 

Here it is taking a photo shoot on the lawn. LOL. 
You of course notice that there is NOTHING in the actual frame. That's because what will go in there is being printed and won't be ready until Friday morning. so I'll take a picture when it's done.

Imagine your company image in the center of this picture frame. Or even a chalk board in the center .. isn't this awesome?? 

Parting shot!!
Of course if you like it please PIN IT so other people can see what I'm over here doing.

Thanks for checking me out.
