Chicken Wire Love…

  Have you fallen in love with chicken wire yet? I have fallen. Hard. After seeing some Lovely Chicken wire frames on pinterest, I had to make my own version, of course. Speaking of pinterest, have you fallen in love with that lovely site yet?? I have.. even harder than chicken wire… I’m a pinning addict! I can’t stop. Go follow me on Pinterest HERE & be addicted with me. Back to the chicken wire….

I made an old window into a picture “frame” using chicken wire.. love. 
What I used…
Wire cutters, Staple gun, chicken wire, binder clips & window frame…
First I took out all the glass panels in the window & gave the front of the window a fresh coat of paint with a little distressing. I stapled the chicken wire to the back of the frame. I actually did two layers of the chicken wire because one layer was too spaced out. Yup, that’s about it. 
All these lovely photos I chose are from Rach Lea Photography. Haven’t checked out her page yet? Well you should.. she is amazing & captures all of our lovely family memories for us.
I love my little yellow end table… I just wish I had a place for it.. blog post on the way.
I am in love with this chicken wire frame. I want to make different versions of this, but I love my first attempt!
Can we just take a moment to laugh at Bella when she used to have long hair. Chubaka!
How has your week been? Mine has been super busy.. Do I say that too much? I feel like I’m constantly saying it & I annoy myself when I say it because I’m like, well then slow down woman! But I can’t, I work a full time job, have a wonderful husband, two puppies, & friends to spend time with, & I have way too many hobbies. I love it. So when I say I’m busy, it’s a good thing! We have friends coming in from Michigan this weekend, a whole 17 hour drive to spend time with us? I’m so excited… I’m getting ready to show them some North Carolina hospitality. We have tons of stuff planned, & I can’t wait for their arrival tomorrow night!! Have an awesome weekend everyone!!

  1. This is funny, I just started spray painting some frames today to make my own chicken wire frames. I also saw on Pinterest…love your version, very neat! Great Job.

  3. Leontien says:

  4. The Painted Parlor says:

    You're too funny! I'm afraid to look at pinterest, I dont have time to get addicted to something else!! Haha!

    Very cute, love it!


  5. So fun! I love chicken wire too. So versatile!

  6. I have a chicken wire project I'm working on now – trying to wrap it around a large glass vase and shape it a bit. Not easy! But I do love some chicken wire.
    And pinterest? That's why I am up so late (East coast time) Amazing crazy creative and down right gorgeous stuff.

  7. This turned out great! Are there different varieties of chicken wire? I had to decide between using chicken wire or burlap to back my window frame that I'm working on – I chose burlap this time around. But have you seen this?:
    UH-MAY-ZING. Thought you would enjoy it if you hadn't already!

  8. That is too adorable!! I love old windows!

  14. Hey Liz Marie!

    I'm visiting from Freckled Laundry and as soon as I saw the chicken wire, I knew I needed to check out your post. :P

    Your first attempt at this frame turned out wonderfully! It has my gears turning as I think about how great one like that would look in my hallway–and how I could switch out the pictures whenever I want. I have a hard time committing to hanging up pictures so this would totally satisfy that desire to routinely change things up.

    Can't wait to check out your blog more–I just saw a link to a post on painted mason jars that's totally calling out to me… :)

    Take care,
    Carolina Country Living

  15. This is so cute! And your pictures are gorgeous! I really love this idea. I have added your link to my linky laundry list post this week. You can check it out here –

  21. Catch A Falling Star says:

    Aww,it's awesome…thats a great idea!

  22. Although my comment has absolutely no bearing on this particular post, I couldn't resist.

    I just wanted to say that I just ran across your blog .. and I'm so glad I did.

    I love, love, love, the idea of the painted mason jars, and the mason jar organizer so much that I think those will be my next projects. I have a ton of mason jars left over from a friends wedding that I haven't had a clue what to do with them!

    This turned out so great! I have window that has been hanging in our bedroom that this would be perfect for.

  39. Erin @ His & Hers says:

    This is adorable. I always see old windows left lying on the road, and this is yet another good use for them. I'm curious-how did you take the glass out without hurting yourself? I would be hesitant. But I'm sorta non-graceful. :)
