You know those cheap frames you find in the middle isles at Wal-Mart? The ones that are marked down to $3 or $5. Well I bought four $3 boring wood picture frames that look like this.
|I forgot to take the picture with the original mat...sorry, picture it a lighter off white color|
Not that there is anything wrong with them, they just don't go with my style, just not me.
Because of this I made them look like this instead.
|Very Nautical I think|
Ahh much better, what do you think?? I ABSOLUTLY LOVE them J
It was super easy, I made sure to buy the frames with the mat in them, and took some fabric that I already owned and wrapped it around the mat and glued it down.
Next I sanded the picture frame just a bit so the paint would stick to it better, then I just painted the frames all white. Easy peasy, and a thrifty way to add style to your old frames.
My inspiration came from Katie, she has tons of great ideas.
For just $12 I now have four nice new picture frames, now I just need to find some pictures to put in them, I'm thinking beach photos :)
