A post or so back I mentioned how picture frames have become my latest "go to" item for fun different "cheap" decorating. With pictures frames not costing much at the thrift store or yard sales I feel like I can do something and not spend mega bucks.
Let me show something I just did today and something I did several weeks ago. Back during July or August I got this idea to redo the computer room (yes even before the recent paint job). I wanted to get rid of the office stuff - or at least hide it. Sorry folks, the old gray 4 drawer file cabinet has to stay...don't want to put it in the garage..it is too handy here. Oh well, that is a project for another day, another time, another year.
I started with this (in addition to several different size frames all painted my favorite shade of black). I bought this old dictionary at the thrift store for a dollar or so...wanted to use the pages as background for my new project.
I taped the dictionary pages to 8 1/2 x 11 copy paper - typed up the words and printed them. I used the layout on the wall to where I could add words as time goes on - if I should want. Just added the wooden "W" a few days ago as Wal-Mart was out of them.
On the wall by the computer table is this arrangement. Just created and added the "Boo" sign today. The wall hangings are metal and have hung in several different places in the house in the last year or so.
I wanted a friendly looking cat - so chose this one.
In addition to the black and white I used red in several spots.
After Halloween I am going to see if I can locate some old keys and put them in the frame where Boo is now. But I never see them at the thrift store or yard sales...may have to check out ebay...or better yet I may just print some on a dictionary page...no just kidding on that.
There you have it...another use for the picture frames.
