Fun Projects With Second Hand Picture Frames

I am in love with Beautiful Scrolly Frames. This one in pink is so pretty! That’s why I was so excited to find some a few weeks ago at some awesome garage sales in my neighborhood for real cheap! There are so many fun projects you can do with second hand picture frames!

What To Do With Second Hand Picture Frames

Since I have a new obsession with chalkboard paint, I am especially in love with the chalkboard frames.

I made this one for my kitchen. We change it up all the time with quotes, pictures and weekly menus.

My original inspiration for the chalkboard obsession was from 320 Sycamore:

I love the quote she used on hers in her post (so much that I’m sharing it here for you):

“If we thought of life as a gift, we might not demand nearly as much from it. And if we lived more graciously, giving of ourselves more freely to the well-being of others, many of our personal concerns would disappear, and life would become easier for all.”
— Lowell Bennion

I found this super fabulous to me frame at a resale shop for $10 and added the mirror to it (Home Depot builder mirror). I love the way it turned out and have it as the backdrop of my little gold frame “collection” in my living room. My Love thinks it’s about time I quit “collecting”, what do you think?

Remember the free items that I shared with you during my Garage Sale Weekend Shopping Trip? Here is the free pile:

IKEA chalkboard and blue table

LadyBug had her eye on the blue table and Ikea chalkboard and quickly called them for her room.

I went crazy with the chalkboard paint one day and painted whatever I could get my hands on at the moment. Here is our pantry with the grocery list and yes, it is always that organized NOT! :

My friend got me thinking about painting some frames red and I think I just may do that for Buttercup’s new room.
