DollarStore plaques REVAMP

I found these at one of the dollar stores in town a few years back. I liked the sayings on them and had them hanging in my hallway.
I've been updating my decor a little by little and thought I would try and revamp these little goodies.

 

I found some scraps of MDF and Trim and spary painted them black.
With the help of my wonderful step-dad, we laid out the pieces and figured out kind of a framed in pattern. . .kind of. . . the pieces were scraps so we had to make do with what we had.

 

A little bit of locktite and some drying time later. . . .

 

The middle section was done and then the sides were added.

 

Does any one know where to get some ALMOST INSTANT drying glue? Hahaha. . . I am super impaitent and HATE waiting for things to dry. . .



Here it is. . . I hung it up in the hallway again where the sayings were to begin with.

 


 


I think it turned out pretty nice.
Big props to Jim for all his help:)
