Any Way You Frame It

Sometimes empty frames can be more striking than filled ones. I think they add a great vintage touch – on your wall, as a “tray” on your nightstand, in a wedding photo (or any photo)…

Some Empty Frame-spiration:

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8

I wanted something white on our accent wall to contrast the blue, and Dac actually suggested empty frames (way to go husband!). So we hunted some down at the antique store in our neighborhood. We spent about $10 (and that included a vintage book or two) and took home four frames we liked, none of which were white to start with. So of course I started by painting them white... 

Then we laid them out on the floor to see what arrangement we liked best before hanging them on the wall. Hanging them turned out to be very easy - they were light so it just took a little nail for each. The progression...

We want to find a few more smaller frames we like to continue adding on, but we're happy with this little cluster for now. The white against the wall is really nice and clean. 

My face "framed" at the farmer's market this past weekend:

Happy Monday!
