Right "Frame" of Mind

I thought I would take a break from sewing projects and talk about how I LOVE to do craft projects for my house.  Love.  In fact, I am running out of wall space to do new ones.  Doesn't make me very happy!  My friend, Bobbi, and I got what we thought was a brilliant idea for our homes.  Once we did it, we realized that apparently others had the same idea.  Oh well.  I still love it!  

We decided to go around to all of the local ARC's and Goodwill's (there are A LOT around here).  Bobbi was looking for specific shaped frames.  I love randomness, so I was looking for whatever caught my eye.  It didn't matter what size, color, or condition - in fact some of my frames used to be mirrors, and one was even a clock.  We took out all the glass (or whatever was in the frame), disposed of it if it was gross or reused it if we could, and cleaned the frames up.  Then, we enlisted the help of Bobbi's husband, Jason, to help us make some "repairs".  Again, we were not picky with the frames we bought.  

We laid out how we wanted them to look on our walls and took a picture. 

This is a picture of what mine looked like originally.  

Then, we took them to the garage and spray painted them so they all were one color.  This is where you could get creative.  I have a ton of color going on in my living room already, so I used black, but get creative!  Add some color to a room with this project if you need it.

Here is a  picture of my final project.  I put mine in my living room and Bobbi put hers in her stairwell.  We love them!  



  1. Hi, I'm visiting from the Link & Greet and Country Momma Cooks. I love this idea. I really like how you unified the look with paint. I've got a lot of random frames that I'm not using. Thanks for giving me some inspiration.
    I really want to be sewing more often. So, I'm looking forward to more inspiration as a new follower.

    1. Glad we could give you some inspiration! Thanks for following! Check back every week. We post at least on Sunday and Wednesday if not more often!


  2. I am inviting you to come and be part of my blog hop:

  3. This is such a cool idea! I love the texture it's brought (brung? ha awkward sentence of the year) to your walls. I love that you found them at thrift stores too. That just makes it 10x cooler.


We love hearing from you. We read each and every comment and try our best to respond to them all as well. Thank you so much for leaving us a note :)
