I found an old wooden picture frame at a local thrift store last year. It was just an open frame, so I got it for super cheap. I wish I had a before picture, but I can't find one so I'm not sure I ever took one. That old wooden frame is now a kids' artwork display in our playroom/guest room. A few coats of Valspar spray paint in Silver Fox and some floral wire completely transformed this into something that the kids can use to proudly display their latest creations.
I had some little clothespins that I bought a while back from Hobby Lobby. They perfectly hold all of the artwork to the wire.
This frame has served other a few other purposes over the last year.
I painted it pink to display Jillian's monthly pictures at her 1st birthday party. It was so fun to see all her monthly pictures displayed in one place!
I painted it grey for a modern pink and grey themed baby shower. We used it to display a few weekly pictures and ultrasound photos. So sweet!
I painted it green to use to display a "Happy Birthday" sign cut out from a Circuit at Brody's 3 year old golf themed party last fall.
I'm not much of a thriftier, but I have been pleased with the many uses of this thrifted wooden frame! :)
This week's challenge is "thrift it"! I would love for you to share something you have thrifted. Just add it to the linky party below and it will show-up on all 9 blogs participating in the party!
