My house is always a work in progress with a budget involved. I have quite a few barren walls and the pictures I have are no longer to my liking. So here’s what I did.
This picture was of a “Italian” style rose. The house I live in now is modern. There’s no room here for my “Tuscan” themed items. I took the picture inside the frame and flipped it over to it’s plain white backside and made some of my own art. Now I don’t even mind the gold frame.
The picture below was a canvas illustration of a woman drinking coffee. I painted it with chalkboard paint and added the text. It’s now hanging in our gym.
Found a this picture in an art book. It’s now getting ready to be hung in our bathroom.
Lastly, another picture from a yoga manual I have. This one will be going in the gym too…or maybe in the hall. Still deciding.
Other options are momento’s, passages from books, photographs enlarged, the ideas are endless. The moral of the post: Don’t throw away the ugly framed art, it can be something else.
