You never know what might get framed

I have such fun finding old frames at thrift stores.
Many of these old frames have some rather unattractive art in them.
OK - let's be honest . . .
they are pretty hideous.
But when I look close - the frames are great!
Remove the ugly - remove the glass -
have Mr. Man cut some mdf to fit . . .
and voila!
A new surface waiting for something special.
A few add-ons for a three dimensional look -
and there you go!
And how about a painted beach rock to finish it all out.
Too much fun!


  1. Happy painting as always! And very thrifty...that's the name of my game!

  2. Awesome! I love re-purposing less than attractive items into incredible works of art. You're certainly good at transforming "trash into treasure"! :o)
