Something From Nothing and a little bit of Everything!

The art of turning "good junk" into "great design"

Starting a Picture Frame Collage

 Is there anything better than a sale at a Thrift Store? I don't think there is. I got all of these frames from Goodwill during their Friday Fever Sale. This sale is every single Friday and everything in the store is 50% off!! It is amazing. I got all of these frames for $12.50!  Uou just cant beat it.

 Now I got these prints from Ikea years ago, but they always have amazing cheap art and prints. I don't think I spent more than $4.99 for a pack of 5 post card size prints.

 Then I just put the prints in the frame and played around with several different ways to hang the pictures on the floor until I found one that I liked.

I put the frames all 3" apart from each other. Also I made sure I can add to the design when I run into more great finds in the future. 
Under $20.00.   I have started my collage of frames.


  1. Found your blog through Google! Great use of the frames. I love the collage with the prints from Ikea.

  2. Glad you liked it Brandi. Now that Laura's wedding is over, I am sure she will be posting lots of great projects. Hope you keep checking in to see what's new
