I love thrift stores because you can always find things that can become awesome with a little bit of work.
Awhile back I found a couple of white square frames for $1.49 each, but wasn't sure what I was going to do with them.
I'm redecorating and reorganizing my kitchen and needed something cute to hang above some extra storage shelves I bought. Inspired by a picture I saw at "Anya Adores", I decided to put the frames to use there. (The shelves in the picture at her blog are the same ones I have--Hyllis shelving units from Ikea.)
The pictures in the frame were nothing I would want anywhere in my house, so they were discarded and replaced by my own printed-on-scrapbook-paper knock-offs of things I'd seen around Pinterest.
Here are the pictures that were originally in the frames (no thank you) and the finished project...
PS -- You probably noticed I couldn't scratch the price tags off all the way. I have some cleaner at work I use to remove graffiti (the joys of teaching teenagers) that is actually meant for removing adhesives and works great. It's called Goo Gone. As soon as I remember to bring it home I'll have them ready to hang up.
PPS -- When I get the kitchen all set, I'll post pictures of them hung.
