Monogram Wall Hanging

I had ordered a letter "Y" from a vinyl company in hopes to put it on a small white plate to hang on the wall. I'm not sure what happened, I ordered it to be 4 inches high and it came in huge!  I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it. 

Then I remembered that I had this old frame from the 70's sitting around and thought it might work. This is what I started with.

The frame was a horrible gold color and it is plastic. It is 11x14 in size.
The "Y" vinyl.
Fabric that I purchased at Joann Fabrics
Spray paint that I purchased at Wallmart.

I first primed the frame with a white primer. Then I sprayed the frame black. It's a black satin by Krylon. It took 4-5 coats of black to get an even coat on the frame.

Addison was having fun with the frame after I painted it. 

This is the final version.  I LOVE how it turned out.  Now I just need to figure out where I want to hang it. My husband said it will probably just lay around because I won't be able to decide where to put it.  I'll have to prove him wrong.

I'm always working on things and my husband says "what's that for" or "where will it go" :) It looks really cute!
