My friend Candace (a.k.a. Cando) is one of my most stylish and intelligent (I threw that in because she just completed her Masters Degree and 3000+ hours of internship hours to become a counselor!) friends. We were roommates in college and for a while after college too. So in honor of my dear Cando's big 3-0 coming up in a few weeks, I have finally fulfilled a request of hers that came over two years ago.
Step 1: Brave the stinky Goodwill near my house, rummage through some heinous frames. Found this gem.
Step 2: Remove the "God Bless America" masterpiece.
Steps 3 and 4: Paint the fake gold leaf frame, insert some wire mesh.
And Voila! A new jewelry frame just waiting to be bedazzled!
Happy birthday friend! Now... you seriously owe me a visit! Stop breaking your legs so you can come visit after it cools down!
