The stars and moon in a frame – Τα Άστρα και το Φεγγάρι

Sharing is caring!

As some of you may know, I along with one of my daughters have been a Beatles’ fan for years now.  We love them so much we even decorated her room with lots of posters and Beatle art, such as this blue frame. After a while it got neglected and  hidden away somewhere.  But the other day I spotted it and took it out.  It was in need of a makeover and fast. Little did I know that it would take the stars and the moon to bring this mess around.

Όπως κάποιοι από εσάς ίσως γνωρίζετε, εγώ μαζί με μια από τις κόρες μου είμαστε φαν των  Beatles  εδώ και χρόνια. Τους αγαπάμε τόσο πολύ που εχουμε διακοσμήσει  το  δωμάτιό της με πολλές αφίσες και Beatle πράγματα όπως αυτή η μπλε κορνιζα. Αλλά  μετά  από  καιρό   παραμελήθηκε.  Είχε  φτάσει  η ώρα για ανανέωση και γρήγορα.  Που να  ξέρα ότι θα  χρειαζόμουν τα  άστρα και το φεγγάρι για να το συνεφέρω!

An old picture frame in blue before, The Stars and Moon
My daughter saw this old frame and hijacked it  immediately… “Mom I am sooo over the Beatles!”  She pulled them out of there and painted that blue into white using chalk paint.

Η κόρη μου είδε αυτό τη παλιά κορνιζα και αμέσως την άρπαξε … “Μαμά, ξεπερασμένοι  οι Beatles!” Τους έβγαλε από εκεί και ζωγράφισε άλλαξε το μπλε σε λευκό χρώμα, χρησιμοποιώντας  μπογιά  κιμωλίας.

She then added a bunch of colored glass in pretty shapes to give it a bit of blingy shine!

Στη συνέχεια πρόσθεσε χρωματιστά γυαλιά σε σχήματα για να δώσει λίγη λαμψη. 

Adding colored stones to frame, The Stars and Moon
Now you may know that my daughter is also a painter and this year has been “the year of the galaxy”.  She did a larger painting that you can see here and a video here.

Ίσως ξέρετε ότι η κόρη μου είναι ζωγράφος και φέτος ήταν «η χρονιά του γαλαξία». Έκανε ένα μεγάλο πίνακα που μπορείτε να δείτε εδώ και ένα βίντεο εδώ..

She inserted this canvas into the picture frame and secured it from the back… and there you have it!  The stars and moon in all its’ glory!


 το καμβά στην κορνίζα από την πίσω πλευρα … και το αποτέλεσμα!  Τα άστρα και το φεγγάρι σε όλο τους το μεγαλείο!

It turned out so well that she gave it to a friend as a gift!  Who wouldn’t want the stars and the moon in a frame as a gift? What do you do with your old picture frames?  

Το αποτέλεσμα ηταν τόσο κάλο, και το έδωσε ως δώρο! Ποιος δεν θα ήθελε τα άστρα και το φεγγάρι ως δώρο;Τι κάνετε με τις παλιές σας κορνίζες;

You're obviously rubbing off on your daughter Mary! I love to reuse old frames. I made one into a blackboard for my desk. It's really good for my to do list. Sally @ Life Loving #LifeLovingLinkie

Sally it may actually be the other way ar o und. We knew she was artistic from a very young age, and I just encouraged her. Your idea is excellent for a blackboard.

Mary, it would appear that the crafting gene runs strong in your family! I love that you two 'craft together'. Her galaxy series is so cool...I hope she stays with painting, she clearly has some natural talent and inclination. And I love the Beatles too...'Hey Jude' is my all time favorite song...ever, from anyone. Just another one of our common qualities. Wishing you a lovely Thursday. Hugs , Lynn

I believe she has surpassed me by leaps and bounds Lynn! I was the one who originally got her to listen to the Beatles and when she developed a healthy obsession I went back and started listening to them again. Oh what a pleasure it is to hear childhood songs from an adult perspective.

I love the Beatles as well Mary! Your daughter is a true artist, she turned that blue frame into something really special. All the colours and tones really go so well together and to give this as a present is a wonderful idea!

And this time Katrin mom did not have to see red or black or any other color. She did it by herself and on time. I just gave her the frame. Oh how they learn!

It turned out really nice. Like mother, like daughter. So what did you do with the Beatles?


Friday 1st of April 2016

Krista, she doesn't need so much stuff in her room She already has more than a few giant posters and now she is into another group... oh no more posters on the way! I'll hide the Bealtes!

Looks great, Mary! many greetings Uwe

Thank you Uwe, and the Beatles will have to hide for now.
