{12 Days of Christmas Giveaway #8: Design Gal}

Today's giveaway is brought to you buy yours truly!

Anytime I go thrifting I always look for fun, ornate frames and mirrors. My collection has built up quite a bit, and I thought for today's giveaway, I'd share one of my finds with a lucky winner!

When I found this frame, it was dull and gold. I do love gold frames, but this one was way past its prime, so I painted it heirloom white and added one of my favorite fabrics for a pop of color!
The end result is a lovely, magnet board, perfect for displaying pictures and to do lists in an office, or to hold recipes in a kitchen! This would even look lovely used to display Christmas cards!

I love the ornate detail of the frame!

Leave a comment for a chance to win and tell me where you'll use it!

Oh! If you become a follower, you get an extra entry! AND if you post about this giveaway, you get another entry! Just make sure you leave an extra comment with the link to your site!

So many chances to win! :) Good luck!
