i know i just mentioned this, but i haven't been able to stop thinking about your amazing frames... i'm taking a trip to my local value world this evening for some good ol' fashioned scrounging! thanks for the inspiration i'll let you know if i have any luck!
Good luck! I see them out quite often most of mine are gold and I take them apart and hit em with black plastic paint....
Well I have been a busy woman and this is one..actually two of 4 makeovers I am finishing up. These makeovers were fueled buy 2 things...my fear that if I don't keep a leash on my collection I will end up broke and with mounds and mounds of collectables surrounding me and the fact that I hate having junk rooms. I figure if I am paying for every square inch of this house I should love every square inch of it...as such I decided to do a few makovers freestyle. I tried to spend very little money and to use things I found in my own basement and garage...this included alot of items I purchased for other rooms or things I just couldn't pass up and swore I would do something with someday. 70% of the cash I spend went to the furniture and primer/spray paint.
This is the room as I found it back in 05
This is my colorful after..
Here's my mad kitty litter box hiding skills in action...I still have to take it out of the TV and place it and her on the second floor nothing like being the middle of a date when you cat decided its time to do her business
My 5 dollar sample rug, love it ( still have to figure out a batter way to hid the sample sticker right now there is a bookself game placed over it)
A huge cheap wall pocket I had to stap to the roof of my car to get home, but it was so worth it!
I saw this self in the window of my favortie thrift store and dreamed about it until I found a way to get it home...
This little display case was a spluge at 40 dollars, I found it at thrift store also know as mid century modern heaven...its jam packed with danish modern goodies...so worth teh drive.
I adore this light, I had 2 smallers ones but I managed to break them
I really like the idea of standing in one room and catching glimpes of bright colors from other rooms so this is my hallway..you can reach it from the dining room.
I have been collecting these frames for ages with no idea what to do with them, I am not someone who has alot photos of family hanging in my house and I wanted to find a way to display some. I really liked the idea of grouping photos along with with lots of little mirror (to bring light and life to this little dark stairway
Thanks for checking out my place, I hope to post a few more makovers.
