Remember my thrifted frames?
Well here they are after a few coats of white paint.
I am feeling pretty chuffed at the result - and all for about $10 (the paint was left over from painting our house).
Starting my thifty challenge has been such a great thing for me. I am definitely thinking twice before buying and planning ahead, not just buying new so I can have it now, but being patient and looking in op shops, garage sales and ebay.
Now these white frames are destined to be part of a picture wall in my lounge room.
Hopefully soon, as things like this have a long lag time over here at the bountifully household.
I think what makes a hodge podge of frames work is a unifying colour. Though I am also going to add a few vintage silver frames for interest.
This frame started out as just a bit of fun
I actually broke the glass trying to get the back off the old frame. Recently the little Miss and I were doing a bit of scrappy collage and I randomly mod podged fabric onto the broken frame.
Not sure what to do with it now, any suggestions?
I am thinking of backing it with cork and using it for a note board or perhaps attach a backing with little hooks and use it to hang my ear rings?
Have a great day,
