Guest Bedroom Frame Wall

A couple of months ago I posted before and after pictures of my
guest bedroom. Though I’m happy with the main wall, the other side of the room is a bit boring. So now, my after picture becomes my before picture.
I wanted to make a frame wall, so I started collecting frames. Really random ones.
Then, while shopping at HomeGoods, I found these place mats. They’re felt-ish and I started thinking about all the things I could do with them and my random frames.
I didn’t look at some of the frames very closely before I bought them (at 90% off you snatch and grab!)….
turns out some of them were NOT meant to come apart.
My little helper did his arts and crafts while I did mine. Okay, that’s a lie. He colored for long enough for me to take this picture then started munching on the crayons. I then proceeded to spend way too long picking wax pieces out from between his teeth. I know, he looks so innocent….
Here’s what I came up with!
Here are the frames individually….they look a little different than the before pictures!
This next one deserves some explanation. It is a birthday card that I sent to my husband when he was in Afghanistan. On the inside it says “It’s your birthday, so take it easy. RELAX. Wear a bucket on your head. Whatever.” When I read it in the store I thought it was hilarious. My husband thought the same thing (when he got it in the mail months later). He said no one else thought it was funny. So the question is….who here has the terrible sense of humor?
Total cost was about $10. The frames were dirt cheap and everything else I had on hand. The placemats were the most expensive at $8, but since I only used one I’m only counting it as $2 (I’ll use the rest somewhere else). My blog, my rules!

  45. Thank you for providing me with some much needed distraction while I wait to see if this is real or false labor. I've enjoyed looking around and am following. I love your sense of color. Enjoy your little one, oh and that picture of him peeing is just about the best thing EVER!

  46. My best friend sent me the 'Wear a bucket on your head' card for my birthday last week! I too thought it was hilarious. It's on my fridge and it makes me smile whenever I look at it.

  47. Oh my goodness! Loving this wall of frames! I need it…

  48. Man. You need to get to work on your About section! What part of South Texas are you from? I read that on your Crappy $5 table. I was born in San Benito and then moved to central TX when I was 9. I have family in Harlingen and McAllen. :)

    Anywho — LOVE this too. I just started a gallery wall in my hallway. I guess it's a gallery hallway then, no? Anyhow. Hobby Lobby has a clearance section that I DIDNOTREALIZE had good frames for cheap!

    :D Thanks for the motiviation to continue crafting!

  49. Beautiful job!!!! I love it!!~ Megan

  50. I love your frames! They have given me inspiration and an idea on how I'm going to deal with a sore spot in my basement, that I am currently trying to improve.

Thank you for your comments!
