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.

Easy DIY craft desk

What an easy, inexpensive project. I found this on Pinterest a few months ago and wanted to share it again. Two simple shelves units are being used to support the top made out of painted plywood, cut to size, and added molding. It’s the perfect size for large and small projects and has storage to boot. Love this!
