Empty Frame Wall Art

I am obsessed with frames.

I just simply adore them.
Probably why I have a huge stack of them in my closet just waiting to be put out.
I can't help but buy them when they catch my eye :)

Might have something to do with my slight obsession for taking pictures as well... hmm. Food for thought.

Anyways... I love this fad of using empty frames to decorate...

see some beauties I found:

(sorry I don't remember exactly where I found it... it's a Martha Stewart design though!)

(another Martha inspired-room)

and here...

Isn't that white beautiful?

So, I got inspired.

I have a huge living room wall that is in desperate need of something to liven it up. It's a huge space and I don't have any big furniture on it so I'm trying to be creative about it.

Plus, I hate the wall color and can't change it quite yet.

Anyways... I gathered up some fun frames:

and spray-painted all of them in various colors.
I kept all the glass and inside pieces in case I do want to actually use them someday :)

I had some little brown ledges already so I put them all together... and...

(sorry for the bad lighting... my camera hates the wall color as much as I do!)

But didn't it turn out quite lovely?

I gathered up some initials I had around... some I painted to match, the big H I got from Kohls :)

I also stuck my canvas I did from this post.

I also covered two of them with scrapbook paper.

Easy, fun and gives amazing life to the room! :)

I'm in love.

  12. Thanks for showing your inspiration pics, especially the white. I'd been debating on painting an old (really old) frame white. I feel bad doing that because it is old, but I'd like it better white, so thanks to your inspirationg, I'm doing it! Blessings!
