Beautiful balance

Here's a lovely second hand find that I purchased a while ago. As you can see, it's a plain wooden frame/board. It only cost me 5 SEK (0,5 Euro). There's so much potential!

My plan was to upcycle this second hand find, by putting a  fabric flower in the vase-like object in the middle. I also wanted to paint the frame. Eventually I just painted everything white with acrylic paint (Traditional craft paint), because I thought it looked  refreshing and very neat that way. I painted a pink fabric flower purple. Finally I stuck the flower in the vase. Here's the result. -> Yay.

I think it goes well together with the colours in my apartment, as you can see here.

Ps. I have submitted this upcycled project to the following challenges:
All Crafts Challenge: June/July

4 Crafty Chicks: Anything goes

Through the Craft room door: Anything goes
