Drew is at a concert tonight with one of our friend’s from home in WV. After I sent the boys on their merry way, I closed the front door and realized…..I have the house allllll to myself. What on Earth should I do!!?!? My eyes go straight for my camera and a long awaited project on my To Do list. Can you guess what this is??
If you guessed a huge, ginormous, heavy, expensive, empty picture frame…you are WRONG!!!! It’s a huge, ginormouse, PLASTIC, cheap, poster frame that used to have a Budweiser sign in it. (I know what you’re thinking….where the heck did I find this?) Well, I recently went shopping in my mother’s basement. She’s keeping all kinds of goodies for me until I own my home (which could happen at the end of the month!!). As I went scavenging for a few items, I stumbled across this and had to have it. I can’t remember where she got this thing, but I have big plans for it. I’m going to spray paint it a vibrant color and put a mirror in the frame. What color? I have no clue yet. I’ve gone back and forth as to where I want to put it….I think that will ultimately decide the color. If you have any ideas, send them my way!!
Now, I knew I wanted to do a before & after post on this project. I got a good “before” picture above, but I wanted to give you an idea of how tall this thing is. I thought it would be a good idea to take a picture of me standing next to it. At first I just tried to hold my camera and snap a self portrait. Not easy when you have a heavy dSLR. So then I propped it on the table and turned on the self-timer. What a terrible angle! I finally dragged out the tri-pod and really started to have fun. Not only did I spend 25 minutes snapping photographs of myself in front of this frame, I started to get really loopy. Here are 4 of my favorite poses. You can tell where I: A) forgot to take off my geeky glasses. (Did I tell you I’m getting Lasik!?!?) B) Started to wonder if I should change my baggy sweat pants. C) Couldn’t stop laughing. And D) Struck a classic Megan Cheerleader/Dance/Rockstar pose. HINT* If you didn’t already know the skinny girl arm trick, prop your hand on your hip…I learned that in college – works everytime.
And you wonder what we girls do when we’re home alone.
