Thrift Store Frame

Those of you who often read my blog know that I like to alter items. Since I recently decided to change the accent color in my craft room from red to pink I have been busy painting and sewing. Here is a $1 frame I purchased to alter.


The altering steps I used:
1. Filled in cracks with wood putty
2. Painted the frame pink
3. Tore, distressed, and adhered pattern paper to corners
4. Adhered bling
5. Adhered flowers
6. Applied rub-on




I am pleased with the results of the altering. It was an easy process, and I hope you give it a try. You can find many used frames at thrift stores for very low prices.

Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate you and your comments. LC
