Thrifted Gallery Wall

Spring Break is over and I am ready to get back to some projects!!  Today I am so excited to share with you something that is definitely one of my favorite projects to date.  The last kitchen update I gave you, I mentioned that next I was working on something for this wall

Well, a few thrift stores, paint, glue, paper, ribbon and pictures later…

I was happy to bring a little more color into this space with these thrifted frames.  Here is how they looked before.

I spent $12.50 on these frames!!  My criteria when shopping were simple
1. decent condition – meaning glass intact, frame intact.
2. some with interesting detail
3. mats were a definite bonus
4. various sizes

The large frame in the middle of the gallery is a frame I have had for years, purchased on sale at Hobby Lobby. It was an open frame with no glass.  But, even it got a little update. 🙂

You can see in the corner of this pic a sneak peek of a little something I shared with my Instagram friends.  My hubby is an amazing craigslist shopper.  

I will be back this week to share with you the how-to’s that went into making these thrift store frames look fabulous!!  

I think now that the kids are getting older, and never home, I need pictures of them surrounding more than ever…so I can remember what they look like – Ha!!  Just kidding.  But, really I love having pictures of our family ALL over our home. These pictures were taken by a very talented friend of mine Angela Maze.  If you are in the OKC metro area you should check her out.  She did my sons senior pics too :).

I am off to work on some more spring cleaning, and some other projects on my list!!  See ya soon!!

**Details for how I updated the mats and frames in these posts

  1. Denise, I love this family collage! How perfect for next to the table where you gather (when everyone is home!) Unbelievable that you only spent $12.50 on frames – you are a thrifting pro!!!! The gallery wall gives your kitchen so much personality – I have one in my kitchen too and I love looking at those photos while I'm working in there…it never gets old!

  2. This is such a great idea. I just wanted to let you know that I am linking to this post on 4/7 at Simply Creative Living if you don't mind.
