~this SHOULD be a common sense kind of phrase, but we are ALL at fault sometimes when meeting people.. we should not be so judge-mental! Easier said than done-
A friend of mine and I recently have been doing a lot of crafting. The last time we had 'craft day' which exceeded all the day and night, she brought over a full bag of empty frames..
If you haven't figured it out yet, I ADORE EMPTY frames!!
Especially the vintage-y kind, the OLDER the BETTER!
Well last evening I pulled out this frame from the bag,
I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it yet, so I just painted it in the meanwhile,
I skipped the primer and painted it RUSTOLEUM aqua..
I got this from JoAnn fabric for .97!! ..
(yes that is not a typo.. they said they are discontinuing it.)
I then knew by that time it was dry what I wanted to do with the frame... It was either a chicken wire memo board, or a picture displayer..
I chose the picture displayer (I know, you're prolly thinking, what are you gonna do to make it a picture displayer, right?!)
I simply thumb-tacked an end of string to the top right corner of the frame (on the back) and started wrapping it around the frame, going down the frame, then up the frame.. a couple times til I ended up where I started.. I then thumb-tacked the end string to the top left corner of the frame (back) ..
*Just a close up from the front side so you can see what it looks like!
I like the idea of these because it is SO EASY to just switch out the display pictures on this instead of a collage picture frame itself.
AND it just looks more creative and fancy!!
I love a HOME MADE look
HOPE YA LIKED IT!!
