Does anybody remember these?

Does anybody remember these ugly frames from several months ago?

Plus, a not-so-ugly frame, with a few loose joints,  I found on super-duper clearance at Hobby Lobby:

Add a little white spray paint:

A little wash of brown and gold:

And TAH DAH!  Here are my new and improved frames!

This is my original inspiration from Lou Cinda at Tattered Hydrangeas:

However, the openings in my frames are VERY small (3 1/2 x 5) so now I am trying to figure out what to put in them and where to actually hang them.

Maybe dollhouse silverware?  LOL

I am linking to Chick on a Shoestring's Flaunt it Friday:


  1. I'm really interested on your frame and its very nice and I love that dinning utensils on frame very lovely.Thank you for sharing this one.

  2. I'm inspired.
    I've got some old frames that need a little spray paint TLC.

  3. How about baby spoons? I think those would fit in the space you have.. or keys


  4. OMG! I love, love, LOOOOOOVE these frames! Fab job, my sista!


  5. Girlfriend, those frames are FANTAB~ULOUS!!! They look so AWESOME!! I love the key idea! I think that would look really good!!

    Your too sweet! MUAH!!!

    Lou Cinda ;)

  6. WOW! these frames looks awesome!! I have 2-3 old frames but in my store room. My bad.

  7. You are a genius - what can I say. What beautiful success. I really like the wire shelves too. I'd put a mix of soft and hard things on them. By this I mean soft and hard edges. So plates, candles, antique book and then some soft - artificial fern, small plant - antique doll. Have fun.

  8. Love those! What a great idea, too. LOVE Sonny's ideas! :)

  9. I'm all for animal print but those was some ugly frames!!!! I loved what you did with them!!! Looks nice!


  10. Girl friend, you have been very busy, they look awesome! And I love the canvas pic! sue

  11. They look a million times better! Awesome job!!
