I bought this Ocean-themed frame at Michaels; last summer for $1.50, wanting to change it somehow, but never got the time til now.  
I just bought 2 sheets of pretty antique-style scrapbook paper from Michaels on sale for 15 cents each.  I unscrewed the back and mod podged the scrapbook paper over the ocean-themed picture.  After it was dried, I put it back together and screwed it in.  And voila! A new pretty antique looking frame with beautiful knobs!

UPDATED:  I was trying to figure out what else to add to the frame and I was walking around Michaels and found these wooden magnetic letters.  (lightbulb!!!)  I bought some letter and stuck them on the frame (the backing is metal).  Right now it's INSPIRE, since I am a 2 year old teacher and loving it!  I can always change it since it's magnetic.  What do you think?

I would some comments about this.  Should I add anything else to it or what? Does it seem okay by itself or should I add something to make it more complete?

I like it a lot as is, but what about a silhouette, perhaps of a Victorian lady.  The piece has an 18Th century look about it to me.

I'll dig this up from page 4... this is pretty darn cool! With the little knobs on the bottom, you could even use it as a keyhook near a door, and I like the fact that you can change the lettering at any time. Way cool!
