picture frames

 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.

There are many things on this dresser that belonged to my parents so it’s not only pretty, the theme honors them.

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.

And then there’s the crate frame you spotted in the Colour Challenge post HERE, holding a gorgeous original hand painted piece by Trish from The Old Post Road.

Do you have a favorite/unique way to frame up art/pictures?
How do you like arranging picture frames?

  1. The wreath, old headboard, frame with twine…. I love them all. I am always looking for new ways to display treasured photos and you’ve inspired me. Also, I’ve never been the first to arrive at a linky party before :) Thanks for having me!

  2. Oh, my goodness. I am in love with your ideas for old photos! I am a big fan of old family photos and have several of them around my house but my favorite idea that I have to use now is the wreath with the little clothespins and photos! LOVE it! Thanks for sharing!

  3. That was very cool. I just happened to do a frame this week myself. I linked up at first to the wrong theme..so sorry:) Thanks for hosting as always, I enjoy your partay’s!

  4. Wonderful inspiration and you’ve gotta love the dress pic. I’ve decided that one of the best things about being close to 50 is that we are in our own vintage photos! :)

  5. Love the photos of your family and all your frame ideas. I guess I should get out some of my old ones, but I hate my hairdos of the fifties. How about a bigger picture of your mom, so we can see what she really looked like? You sounded a little sad on Miss Mustard Seed’s blog. Are you okay? How about some more pictures of the submarine board room? Hold on and keep moving, Ann

  6. your frame ideas are wonderful!

    i swear you & your gorgeous funky junk style are a brand in itself!

    i linked up to picture frames…my newest creation could go under a variety of titles. ha!
    have a great weekend!

  7. Oh I am a sucker for old photographs. I am the crazy woman buying them at flea markets. :)

    I place my favorite is tarnished silver bowls on end tables, etc for people to sift through. In the summertime it is my people in bathing suits, fall is old halloween photos, etc.

    Come on by and see my painted floorcloth tutorial. You’ll love it.

  8. Hi, Donna. I came back and listed my Thanksgiving rectangle book wreath like you suggested. Loving SNS! So many great frames and unique takes on framing. Your barn window project is so beautiful and easy too! I love it. Thanks for sharing. Have a great weekend.

  10. Your vignette actually made my heart skip a beat! I LOVE it and the idea with the TWINE is GENIOUS! I think I’m going to borrow that one for sure! THANKS for always hosting such fun link parties!

  11. I love ALL your posts. I am now an official blogger (3 posts!!). I am not sure how to link back to you after I posted in your Sat nite special. Can anyone here help? Thanks!!

  12. I love these frame ideas of yours! I love how you take these objects and turn them into frames, creating the most unique photo vignettes! My favorite is the iron headboard! Just perfect. :)

  14. We love this! Repurposing photos and putting them in places so anyone can interact with them is ideal. We usually try to make them pop a little more with folding mechanisms and with that headboard idea. That would be an lovely area to place them on.
