I often find myself swooning over all things Pottery Barn. I know, you are shocked. I love
our their style! I was perusing through and found this:
All of my frames in my house are black (most have been spray painted that way.) I use to love picture frames when I was a teen and collected quite a few over the years. However, I felt like they were taking away from the important pictures I had in them, so I unified them in color. Black-it's slimming ;)
I am ALWAYS on the look out for interesting frames and frames with matting.
Did you know you can paint the matte too?!? I paint all mine white. I am also a fan of matting, but it is EX-PEN-SIVE... So I use poster board instead sometimes (shhhhh, it's a secret.) I use to use construction paper, but that fades to easily in the sun.
I came across some inexpensive frames for the GW. I scored them for half price (yellow tags were marked down) and also an additional 10% off because I got the GW discount card!
They were $3.99 originally....then $1.99 and then finally, $1.79! I also got some UGLY pictures for $5 from craigslist. They were marked $199 on the back...whateva! I painted over them, the smaller rectangles got a coat of chalkboard paint and are in the girls' rooms and the bigger one is now my PB number artwork!
I also came across a black canvas with some white string I can't seem to find the picture and be able to attach it. It was in the PB catalog and thought it would be simple to create...it was!!
I started out with this stuff:
They turned out like this:
I just popped some cute pics the girls drew when they were little. They had been in my wallet for years, now everyone can enjoy them! I also plan on getting some frames for them to have art to change out as they want.
Here they are on the wall:
