One of my favorite things to hunt for when I'm out thrifting is pretty picture frames!
Don't you just love the thrill of the hunt? You really never know what you will find. Many times I leave empty handed, but sometimes I luck out and find some real beauties!
Well, they don't always start out so lovely.
I don't have any before shots of the frames that I'm sharing with you here, but most were pretty ho-hum when I first spotted them!
What is even more fun than searching high and low for the frames is painting them, and combing them into pretty sets for my Etsy shop.
This set here is my latest creation. You will notice a theme here, I just love combing pink and creamy white!!
Frames are one of my best sellers, and it's always so exciting when a buyer tells me they are using them for their babies nursery, or as part of their wedding.
Many of the frames that I find are vintage, like these.
I was super excited to find this gorgeous ornate pair, below.
They are vintage and made in Italy.
They are simply shabbylicious!!
Even hubby helps me hunt for frames. He knows now just what to look for!
I almost always include pretty decorative paper or vintage sheet music to the insides of the frames, as I think it makes them even prettier for their photo shoots!
I love mixing my own paint colors, which is what I often do to create lovely shades of pink.
This set below I created awhile back. I could hardly believe my luck to find a matching set of these vintage metal filigree frames!
The floral details are amazing!
They were gaudy gold when I found them, and I think they are so much happier painted my signature creamy dreamy white!
I just sold this last set.
So that means only one thing..........
I need to get out and look for more frames to paint!
Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a great day!
