It's raining cats and dogs!

It has been raining for days. Here in Southern California rain is such an oddity that we don't quite know what to do, do we?  
I can't get motivated to work in the cold!  But, I did get out to the garage to make this special gift for my good friend who is a cat person!  I am not a cat person, and I am allergic to them, but I do tolerate her cats.  However, I think they've made it their life goal to make me love them because in a room full of people they always come rubbing their furry bodies up against me.  Ughhh...

I found the poster (on sale at Hobby Lobby) and I made a simple pine frame (from scraps), glued it all together with the poster inserted in the dado, then realized I should have stained or painted the frame before I put it all together!  I get in such a hurry to finish things!  So, I scrounged and found some gold leaf cream and silver rub-n-buff and just rubbed that on the different parts of the frame.  

I love how it turned out!  She liked it, too - now she just has to figure out where to hang it!
