Besides reorganizing and cleaning, I've been doing a couple of projects. I finished my headboard & footboard. I've redone a chandelier, and finished 9 frames for my massive photo wall! I will share those projects with you throughout the week, so keep checking back!
Here is a thrift store frame transformation! I bought two of these frames at Goodwill for $1.50 each! I wish I had taken a photo with what was inside (it was a very ugly bird photo). Anyway, when I found two identical frames of this size....I fell in love! And I knew exactly what I was going to do with them. They were the perfect size for a little handprint!
These frames were plastic....but I primed and painted them with regular spray paint and it worked out really well! Here is a before photo of the frame.
And here is an after with Alexander's handprint. My kitchen is aqua and pink...so I decided to do the frames in an aqua color. I used Krylon's "blue ocean breeze."
And here is Benjamin's handprint.
And here is the what they look like on either side of my kitchen window! They are soo adorable, and much cuter in person!
So the total of the frames were $3.00 and I barely used any paint and primer (which I had on hand). And I used acrylic paint, which I had as well, for the handprints. So for under $5.00 I have these wonderful little handprints for on the wall!
Be sure to check back this week for some other cool projects!
Also, be sure to visit Katie at "Along the Way with K & J" for a Trash to Treasure Party! Love her blog, and everyone has such wonderful ideas and finds! I added my link...now go and add yours too! :)
