I have another easy picture frame project to share today.
Do you have that one thing you look for when you’re junkin”, yard salin’, or thriftin’? For me, it’s frames. I surely do not need them. It’s just that there are so many things you can do with a simple picture frame. So I always keep my eyes open.
I gave this one a new life as a pretty tray:
There are so many uses for a cute lil’ tray, right? Here, I’m offering you sugar and starfish. What?? (Just go with it and think, “That tray sure is versatile.”)
Are you dying to see it before? Here it is…
I showed this to my mom and she said, “Oh that will be sweet in Brennan’s room.” Um, no. Although it is very sweet, it will be going no such place! It was marked down to $1.58. It doesn’t get much better than clearance at the thrift store!
I painted the frame with pure white ASCP and distressed it a bit:
I reinserted the glass after a good cleaning.
Then I wrapped the sweet picture in pretty fabric and secured it the most professional way I know how:
I covered that expert tape job with brown wrapping paper using hot glue. (You know, it never occurred to me to use hot glue to secure the fabric!)
Lastly, I added these screen door handles:
Old Picture to pretty tray!
I wouldn’t try this with a frame any bigger than what I’ve used here since picture frame glass can be fragile.
The fabric was leftover from my mom’s mother’s day present (which I’ll share soon) and the handles were $2.49 each. So with the frame, this project cost me less than $7 🙂
Thanks for letting me share, I’m so glad you stopped by!
