Wasn’t gonna post this one thinking “too simple and plain”, but once I put the lacquer on it and the grain jumped out I just had to share!

We picked up the drawing at a craft fair a few months ago and I just got around to making a proper frame for it.

Started this morning and just got the glass cut and everything together this evening.

Measures 13×5 inches.

Now just have to figure out where to hang it. :-)

Cheers!
