so here are a few things i wrote down, and then i scoured pinterest to find examples.
because otherwise this would be a super boring post :)
[if you follow me on pinterest, i apologize for the over-abundance of frame-pinning]
wrap it with yarn
because, let's be honest... you could wrap anything with yarn and it looks awesome, right?
i could do an entire post on things that are wrapped with yarn.
wrap it with fabric
what i love about these first two options, is that you're covering up the actual wood part, so the frame can be as ugly as they come. you can get ugly frames at goodwill for $1.00
spray paint it any color you want
this is perfect if you find a really ornate design but the color or condition isn't great
leave them open with nothing in it
leave it open with a smaller sized photo/print in it
i love this look, especially if it's an oddly sized frame but you still want to use it
cover the mat in fabric [or yarn??]
you could also just put fabric in the back and place the photo on top...
same idea, except you don't need to have a pre-existing mat.
back it in fabric and glue a clip on it
for easily interchangeable artwork or photos
i love this idea and will totally be using it in our upstairs hall for my daughter's artwork.
spray the glass with chalkboard paint
there are so many other options:
twine [yarn?] or wire strung across,
with clothespins for hanging:
lace matting. gorgeous:
frame within a larger open frame
well, i see i've gotten carried away. hopefully you find some inspiration here!
