Framed Seasonal Art

An Easy and Inexpensive Way to Celebrate the Seasons

 

I like to decorate my home for the different seasons, but sometimes that can get expensive.  I found a great way to change things up whenever I want for just the cost of a piece of scrapbook paper.

 

I was mulling around my local thrift store and found a frame that was actually on a stand.  I really liked it, and knew I could create something fun.  I also found these two little wooden buckets that I thought would make great feet for it.  So for $2 I was outta there with a project in mind.

This is how these guys looked before.

When I first got it, I thought I would create a chalkboard on one side and a dry erase board on the other but when I took the top piece off I noticed there were two pieces of glass (well, one side is glass and the other side is acrylic) not sure why.  But it really didn’t matter.  At that point I knew I could sandwich a piece of paper in between and have a fun piece of interchangeable art.

I cleaned everything up, removed the wire handles from the buckets, and gave everything a few coats of white spray paint.

Then, I sanded a little for the distressed look that I love.

After that, I used some wood glue to mount the “feet” to the bottom of the frame stand.

Voila!  I was done.

This piece of scrapbook paper from Moxxie is just perfect for spring.  I just cut the 12×12 piece down to the frame size (8×10), slid it between the glass and the acrylic, and replaced the top piece of the frame.  It has screws on the side that allow the top piece to come off, so you can exchange your art as you wish.

Pretty cool right?  I ended up really liking it.  At first, I wasn’t sure about the feet but I think they have grown on me now.  What do you think?
