Wondering what to do with all those old frames you find at yard sales, flea markets, and antique shops, that have no glass and no use other than being a pretty frame? Of course, you could take it to the glass shop and get a piece of mirror cute and put in place, but that can be expensive. Here are some inexpensive ideas you can use.
1. Make a Chalkboard. You just need to cut a piece of plywood to fit into the frame, paint the plywood with chalkboard paint (and paint the frame if you wish as I did with mine), and mount it in the frame. Voila, instant chalkboard! I use mine in my kitchen which works well for grocery lists, as you can see. At least there are a couple healthy items on my list…
2. Make a Jewelry Organizer. You can paint your frame if you wish as I did for this project. All you need is chicken wire, a staple gun with staples, and some “S” hooks. I stapled the chicken wire to the frame, and then hung my “S” hooks on the wire, which gave me a place to hang my baubles. You can mount your organizer to the wall as I have done. Before I did this project, my necklaces were all in one big tangle, so this has been great!
3.When in doubt, display in a group. Almsot anything looks good when clustered together with similar items. Here I have placed several frames on a shelf above my front door and they look pleasing enough to me! You could also hang in a grouping on your wall. How simple?
Hope you enjoy your frame projects and feel free to email me though [email protected] if you have any questions!
