Frame Transformation


I purchased this very large frame for $5 at a yard sale last summer.

I loved the multiple layers and the outer layer’s design & detail.


I knew right away that I would be painting it white, but didn’t get around to painting it until a few weeks ago. I decided that for the time being I would use it to frame a bulletin {inspiration} board in my craft room.





I spent all day on Saturday in my craft room organizing, crafting, and working on more spring wreaths.

I made some new tacks for my inspiration board out of scrabble tiles…


and vintage pins.


Some of the projects I worked on….049


Marshmallow overload in my hot cocoa.

  1. Gorgeous! Also, your wall color in your craft room is so pretty. Do you know what color you used? I'm in the process of picking out paint colors for my house.


  2. I love your frame makeover and the idea you turned it into a craft inspiration board! I love your whole space. I am in the process of organizing mine and it's quite overwhelming. LOL I'm with Maryanna, I love your wall color. Do you know what color it is? Thanks so much for linking up to Terrific Under Ten today!


  3. Love your frame – seeing it above the sewing machine made me realize how HUGE it is! What a great piece – you'll be able to use it hundreds of ways! Echoing envy of your space – if I had that I could really crank out some fun!


  4. I'm a BIG fan of using old frames (all painted) in my decorating and yours are some of the BEST I've seen! Love seeing your creative space too!


  5. I've been trying to find the perfect frame for something like this! You totally scored with that awesome piece. It looks beautiful in your craft room.

    Have a great week,

  7. I have a love for frames & never pass one up! I have a frame that is so very similar to yours…same cut outs and all. Painted mine cream. I love how you used yours 🙂


  8. Oh, that's beautiful! What a creative idea. I just did a frame transformation on my blog last week..I still have a couple frames left, so I'd love to try this one. I just love that its for your inspiration board. 🙂


  9. What a neat idea. I admire folks who can look at something and make it look like something else. I look at stuff and think its neat, and wonder what I could turn it into. Good for you!

  11. I love how the framed turned out. The inspiration board being a little smaller and fitting inside is such a fun addition.
