A simple remake

Ugly frame re-made pretty

Sometimes simple projects are best. I found a nasty little frame at a yard sale. I think I paid a nickel for it — or maybe it was free, I can’t remember.


Ugly frame to re-make


But it was, indeed, nasty. I don’t even know what that grease stuff is (don’t wanna know). My husband thought I was nuts. Why the heck would you want that? But the remake project was quick and easy, just a coat of paint and some pretty paper. It’s the perfect addition to a little baby gift – and the cost? five cents. Love that.

I’m linking over at Tidy Mom and the CSI project and today… it’s all about frames and moldings this week.

Swimming over from the fish bowl! Your site looks lovely! I love the background, and the easy-to-access links at the right side.

The re-done frame looks great, too! I love the look of the clean, white frame.

That is so sweet… The frame was a great shape, if you can see past all the ugly brown (which you did!).

This is darling! I can’t believe how good it looks with just a coat of paint! You must have a great imagination, because I don’t think I could have envisioned something so pretty at first sight.
