Family - gotta love 'em

I found these two wood frames at the thrift store for $2.00 each and decided they could use a little makeover. One had glass and the other didn't, but that didn't matter. The frames were still good.

I gave them a couple coats of good ole black spray paint and they looked 100 times better already.

I have been trying to decide what to do with the large wall in my kitchen and decided these frames would be perfect. I found a curtain rod and hung that all on the wall first. I must add that I did it all by myself too. I used some other 5x7black picture frames I already had for the other pictures. I used some black and cream wide ribbon and did a faux ribbon hang, meaning the ribbon is just taped to the wall and the picture is hanging from a nail. I was able to hang a picture of all of our siblings and parents. The layout worked out perfectly. Then I got some vinyl from Jill and added that to my wall. Here's the finished project.

  1. This looks so great. I love all the variety of frames.

  2. Cute but not sure why you didn't hang the frames from the curtain rod, as it would make it easier to change frames?
