Rustic Frame Collage

Happy Tuesday, friends! I hope you had a nice, relaxing weekend and are ready for another great week! You may remember that last week I shared our table and chair transformation— from dark wood to old white using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint! Part of that transformation led to a new rustic frame collage behind the table.

I am not going to lie this took a lot of trial and error before landing the perfect combination and I am not even sure if I am 100% happy with the frame layout. I often end up making changes down the road. It’s a long (and sometimes painful– mostly for my boyfriend) process.

Decorating with empty picture frames can be a great way to add a little personality to your decor without spending much money at all. When I was staging this table in my last blog post showing how to use the Annie Sloan chalk paint I realized how cute it would be to add some empty picture frames above it. I have never used empty frames while decorating but remembered a bunch I had stored away in the basement that I had chalk painted months ago.

The best part about decorating this way is that empty wood frames can be picked up for a great price at thrift stores and yard sales. Many people do not see the value in something that no longer has the glass with it. So what do you say, give it a shot? Are you a fan of empty picture frames?
