Here we go, finally! I have been running these kids around ALL. DAY. LONG. Does anyone else feel like a slave/chauffeur in their own home sometimes?
Three small matching frames with disposable wall art inside, 59 cents each. One larger frame with a seriously ugly print inside, $1.99. A cute little china teacup, 25 cents. One pair of brown linen Eddie Bauer shorts in MY size, for $3.49.
I thought I’d show you what I saw in the frames. There’s usually quite a large selection to look through, so it takes some time to find what you want. I like solid wood frames with some details. See the little detail on that one?
What to put in the frame? Oh my, the possibilities are endless and there are hundreds of cool ideas out there in blogland. I LOVE to frame fabric and scrapbook paper. They’re both inexpensive (in small amounts, at least) and add color and pattern to a room instantly. You could frame photos (duh!), ticket stubs, vacation souvenirs (shells anyone?), mementos, calendar pages, sheet music, wallpaper, your kids’ art, post cards, greeting cards, and on and on and on…
Here’s what I did with this one:
A quick coat of Heirloom White and a piece of my FAVORITE scrapbook paper and I’ve got instant art. This paper is serving as my “inspiration piece” for my powder room redo that I haven’t told you about yet. Stay tuned. I’ll probably frame the other two in this set with the same paper, just different parts of the pattern.
