I love frames!
Lately I've been looking for frames at yard sales and thrift stores. You can leave them as is or paint them. There's so many wonderful things you can put in them as well, or you can leave them blank!
I've seen pretty pictures of walls decked out in just the skeleton of the frame, all painted the same color. Some of them are done in the same color hue, or completely different. Above a mantel, going up the stairway, greeting you in the foyer, the ideas are endless!
About a year ago I got these frames for $2.00 each. They are BIG, and I love the color. Even the black and white romantic pictures are very nice, just not my style. I got them because I knew there was something I could put in them!
Next, I had already decided what pictures I wanted of the kids. I printed both of them on regular 8x10 photo paper (did you know that Dollar Tree has photo paper? It really is good and so much cheaper!). I have a photo editing program that changed the color photos to the sepia ones that you see, which I thought matched the damask paper perfectly! I did an 8" square of the photo that allowed 2" on each side, which made a nice mat around the photo.
