~ This weekend’s themed link up ~
My fireplace mantel got a little makeover with some family magic for this weekend.
Where’s the picture frame you ask? IMO, the entire fireplace, mirror and embellishments ARE the picture frame. A picture frame can be much more than just the piece surrounding the photo. In this case, the environment is the platform for this small photo grouping.
Miniature clothespins simply clipped to the wreath created the perfect place to hang a few vintage pics of my brother and I.
(I hope he loves me enough to forgive me for publishing that pic on the left LOL… notice he’s holding his cars?)
Yet another funky twist. My bedroom dresser holds some of my fav photos of my parents.
The pictures were simply hung on the old headboard, creating a photo gallery of sorts.
Simple old barn window frames without the glass make fun rustic frames for these CNC routered samples.
(I help at my friend Dan’s workshops in which we paint these samples with different faux finishes)
And here’s a wild card for ya. 10 min project tops! I grabbed an old window and twine, started one area held with a push pin, and wrapped the twine around the frame very random like.
This is the back. Then I flipped it over so the pins wouldn’t show.
I placed the pictures (complete with original cardboard and wooden frames) where I desired them to go, allowing the twine to do it’s thing.
Some areas got abit of masking tape to hold things in perfect place.
(yes, that is me in my Cleopatra haircut)
This little picture vignette is right above my computer, so I see it all the time. And I LOVE it. The added industrial chic touches take me back to my farm days growing up, so the area in whole actually tells a story.
Do you have a favorite/unique way to frame up art/pictures?
How do you like arranging picture frames?
The 3rd themed linkup is waiting for your picture framing inspiration posts!
Next weekend is SHUTTERS so get yours all dolled up.
Inspired by the above post:
Entertaining Angels gets busy with the twine and wrap style.
Very cool take!

1. Please link up your intended post, NOT your blog homepage url. (post, then click the title of your post, cut and paste that url) If your post has been deleted, please try again.
2. Please put a link in your post (button or text) that leads back to the party so others can see what’s up!
3. This party is geared for DIY type projects we can all attempt to make ourselves. Items for sale may be linked up IF your entry is posted on your blog and in tutorial style.
4. For Home Decor and Crafts, Sewing, Cooking, please link projects up that are new to SNS and within 1 month old. This helps keep content fresh! The 3rd weekly themed link may have older posts and not brand new to SNS.
