The Girls Got Framed

 Yes, indeed the girls got framed.
 I love my cow print and have had it hanging in the living room for a few months.
I noticed the other day that it was getting lost in the wall color.
 A wall color that I cannot change.
That is one disadvantage to living in a log home.
 So down to the basement I went in search of some
scrap lumber to make a frame.
 I found some pine trim boards that were left over from the build,
so I snagged them and fitted them around the frame.
 I figured a coat of white paint and a little dark wax would
work to make the cows pop against the log walls.
I like how it looks now and the frame isn’t attached to the picture 
so I can remove it any time I want.
