Picture this!

August 9, 2011

Framing is no longer just for paintings and photographs! There are so many fun ways to decorate a space and make it personal. Here are a few inspiration pics to get the creative juices flowing…

Frame those fabrics. It instantly adds color and style to a space.  There are tons of discount fabric stores online and many will even send free samples.

Paint away! A stencil and some paint and you’ve got yourself a cool way to personalize a kid’s room.  But don’t just think stencil, have at it and create your own mural right on the wall.

Go team USA.  If clothes don’t fit anymore, why not frame your favorite tshirt or onesie. Soccer is a favorite sport in our home so we framed our toddler’s old soccer onesie and hung it on his door.  It’s fun and adds a pop of color to his space.

Or why frame anything and just let the frame speak for itself. Start with a neutral space and add color and style through a variety of frames in colors and textures. Gives an instant vintage/modern feel.

How about framing cards and small prints… What a clever way to make a clock.

Want more framing ideas, here are a few to consider for your space…

-frame photographs of places you’ve traveled and write the date/place on the matte

-frame nature-leaves, shells, twigs will do

-frame your kids art

-frame the walls as wainscotting

-frame placemats or even decorative plates

-frame heirloom jewerly or antique pieces like keys, spoons, etc. and forget the glass if its not flat enough

Have fun framing!
