The winners can contact Belvedere Designs to claim their prizes.

Let me show you what I did with my monogram from Belvedere.
I'm sure you know that I thrive on constantly changing things in my home. Because I'm afraid to commit to having anything stay on my walls, I came up with this idea for my monogram.
Months ago I showed you a huge frame that I found at the thrift store.I popped out the painting (storing it in the garage), painted the frame and propped it up against the wall.
I enjoyed that look for a few months and then leaned the frame above my sideboard. It eventually was actually hung on the wall.When my monogram arrived I was so excited to find that it would fit perfectly inside the frame. And I was happy that I hadn't thrown away the original picture!
I thought about spray painting the picture but then I remembered that I had a roll of wall paper that I picked up at the thrift store. This wall paper is fantastic! It looks like old tarnished, scratched metal.
I applied the wall paper directly to the painting. The burnishing tool that came with my design was handy for applying the wallpaper and the monogram.When the paper was dry my hubby helped me line up the monogram.
Belvedere Designs websight shows just how to apply their designs.
With a design this big it really helps to have another set of hands.
Thanks hubby!
All that was left was to pop the newly covered picture back into frame, adhere it with a little hot glue, and hang it back on the wall. I love my new monogram! I am incredibly impressed with Belvedere Designs products and their customer service! If you haven't already seen all that they have to offer, take some time to visit them now.
