Simple Scrapbook Frame Upcycle

On one of my visits to a thrift store I found several of these great wooden, distressed, framed signs for only $2.99 each.

There were six of them so I bought all of them, not sure what I was going to do with them. At first I thought I would find a place to hang them in my apartment, but something about them wasn’t quite right. The printed sign inside the frames begin to appear cheesy and out-dated, so I decided to use them for picture frames and painted them black. Using my scrap booking supplies and pictures of my children, I’ve turned two of them into a simple framed, scrapbook collage.

I have four more to go. I’ll keep you posted.
