*I LOVE to display pictures and create art using picture frames. However those frames can really get pricey.
*I make it a point to keep my eye out for great clearanced prices on picture frames. It dosen't matter if the color is not what I am looking for, I can change that. A little Krylon goes a long way! ;)
*I have even bought white wood frames that had some paint scratched off that were on clearance for $1 a piece. I personally liked the roughed up look!
*When you find a great deal buy as many as you need, can afford, or think you may need/want later!
Here is my most recent frame find:
When I was grocery shopping last week I decided to stop in at Kmart and see if they had any Christmas clearance. The only thing I found were some white 8X10 frames that were part of the "winter" collection marked down to $1.24 a piece. Since I still hadn't displayed any of the girls pics from their fall photo shoot I knew I better get some frames.
The frames were very hard and through the packaging I thought they were wood. Then I opened them and thought they were metal at first but finally realized they were solid hard plastic. I bought 10 because you just never know when you might need one. :)
After I had the girls pictures made I had printed half a dozen 8X10's but I wasn't sure which ones I was going to use....at least for now.
So next I will take those down and give them a fresh coat of paint. After that I think I will replace the girls '07 pics that are in them with one of my favorite baby pics of each of them.
I really LOVE the photos I printed from their fall photo shoot! :)
I still have 7 more pictures frames, 2 will be used in my hubby's new office which is coming up soon. I am working really hard to finish all the painting in there so I can post before and afters.
3 of them will be used so I can display the girls White Christmas pictures. Where am I going to display them? Well it is a secret I am not quite ready to tell yet. You will just have to wait and see! :) That will only leave me with 2 more frames. Hmm, I am already wondering if 10 was enough.......
