Shabby Chic Decorating 2

I have to admit that I have a "thing" for vintage frames. I buy them constantly and find a use for them later. I thought I'd share a few today. Most of you know I hand paint and distress furniture and mirrors. I love to take an old frame, paint it white and add a new mirror like above. My favorites are original chippy paint frames that are great as is. I love to layer them on the wall with other things ... (old chippy paint doors work too).
This is actually soft green shades that all match but it's hard to see in the photo.

I bought this as is ... a vintage frame, hand painted, with a piece of gorgeous vintage fabric.
This last photo is hanging in my bathroom. I've had this pink window frame forever but I just love that it's pink. So, next time you drive by an old frame out by the trash, stop and pick it up. So many possibilities .
Thanks for visiting ...

I love your work! Truly! What is the material holding the flowers made of? Is it tin? It's so pretty and such a unique idea for holding flowers!

Now, if only I'd make them in miniature scale lol..

Have a great week!

Is there anything that you touch... that you can't make absolutely beautiful? Good thing I don't live near you!

Ahhhh.... love them, love them, love them. We are truly kindred spirits. I hang vintage frames on my walls with no pictures. I think they are artwork in their own right. Most people think I'm a bit looney...hee,hee,hee
