• Father’s Day Framed Floating Pictures in a Faux Leather FrameTutorial

    June 7, 2013

    There’s something about my Dad’s office that has kind of a manly air to it. Perhaps it’s the marble core lamp or the big, fancy wooden desk or the weather thingies that hang on the wall, but there’s something about a man’s study. Isn’t there? So when I was trying to think of something to…
