I’ve had a few thrift store frames sitting around for awhile and thought I’d see what I could make of them to add to Addie’s bedroom decor. It felt so good to just craft aimlessly and I love how this little frame turned out. Easy art. Cheap art!
The steps are simple. I used a thrift store wooden frame that I picked up for $1.99. I roughed up the edges with some sandpaper and slapped on two coats of white paint. After the frame dried, I roughed up the edges with sandpaper again, paying special attention to the scrolly areas. LOVE the chippy finished look.
To finish the frame, I used spray adhesive to attach a vintage piece of sheet music to the cardboard insert and popped it in the frame. Then, I rolled up a few fabric flowers (do we need a tutorial on these or has everyone seen them a million times over?) and gathered some ribbon, tulle, and faux pearls. I cut a large circle of felt and moved around my embellishments until I loved the ensemble. I hot glued everything down onto the felt and connected it to the corner of the frame. Done!
The girls have been talking about bunk beds for quite awhile. About as long as Gracie has been sharing a room with Olivia and sleeping on a mattress on the floor. About as long as their room decor has been “in progress” waiting for a more permanent furniture arrangement. So we bit the bullet and ordered bunk beds for Christmas. They arrived this past weekend (so much for bunk beds all set up on Christmas morning!). Before we set them up, I wanted to snap a few pictures of their “before” room. I don’t really have a master plan for their room, but now that there are two beds for the two girls, I suppose I better start thinking a little harder on it. Here’s a little “before” collage…
