New batch of small frames. 50% OFF sale reminder.

I typically prefer to gather and re-vamp BIG wall size picture frames, but it’s been pretty slim pickin’s on those lately, so I’ve started rummaging through the smaller frames at thrift stores and estate sales of late.

 Here are some from my most recent batch of made-over frames.

P1220051
Just aqua paint and some hand sanding on them all.

P1220052I look for frames with interesting embossed details.

P1220056Sometimes the details are ‘just’ in the corners.

P1220061Other times, the whole frame is detailed.

P1220065Even just repetitive grooves add a lot of interest once painted and distressed.

P1220066

I was in a hurry to get this batch done and into my booth, and decided to forego the ‘pictures’ in most of these frames.  It really doesn’t COST much to add some kind of a picture to them, but it is TIME consuming.

P1220349

But I still managed to add a ‘little something’ to a few of them!

P1220067Sometimes I do varying shades of aqua / turquoise when I do a batch of frames.  Since each frame was so unique I went with all the same color on all of them this time.

P1220069Really DEEP frames are always a good find too!

P1220333Not so fond of how this one turned out.  Just might have to repaint it white.  We’ll see.

P1220318

I think I actually liked it BETTER before I repainted it!  You can’t tell in the picture, but the brown part of the frame has a crackled texture to it; kind of looks like alligator skin.

P1220355

An old, newly repainted berry basket stand was ‘called up’ to serve as the display for the gathering of all the smaller frames.  ( a few of them are from a previous batch)

P1220348

Layers of frames; a study of contrast.
P1220313This small and sweet vintage metal frame was perfect ‘as found’; I just added a picture.


P1220345

This batch of larger ‘wall frames’ had originally all been repainted white and distressed.  Alas, they had been sitting in my booth for TOO long without selling, so I brought them home for another make-over.  A quick dry brush with aqua or turquoise paint and a bit more sanding.  Back in my booth just in time for the HALF PRICE SALE.

P1220346I SO wish I had more wall space available so that I could actually ‘display’ them instead of just plopping them on the floor.  Frames are probably my favorite decorating accessory and they sell so much better when ‘properly displayed’.

P1220343Although there is another dealer who has one of those big ole canvas cargo carts in her booth and she just piles all her frames into it.  I constantly see shoppers curiously rummaging through them, hunting for a treasure to take home.

P1220351REMINDER:  EVERYTHING IN MY BOOTH IS 50% OFF THROUGH LABOR DAY MONDAY.  Sale signs are posted in each booth, (and in all 3 stores!) with varying % off.  Perfect way to spend a rainy Labor Day weekend.

P1220361I’ve got lots of vintage little gold frames too!
