Ideas and Inspiration for Re-purposing Picture Frames – My Tuesday {ten} No.10

It’s Tuesday and time for the Tuesday {Ten}.

The Tuesday {Ten} is all about sharing what’s going on, things you love, recent purchases, cute photos…pretty much all the sweet tidbits that make up daily life that you’d like to share, bundled in to one post. It can be short and sweet or filled with pictures and details…anything goes – just casual and fun!

I recently re-organized my craftroom/workshop and came across so many unused picture frames. Some definitely had some wear from storage and even though they may never be used again for their original purpose – they can still be used for some pretty cool crafts. Even if you don’t have any frames packed away, they are pretty inexpensive when picked up at thrift stores and sales – especially when others think they are over and done with because the glass is broken or the frame is in need of some work {nothing a little creativity and paint can’t handle}. So for this weeks Tuesday {ten} I put together some ideas to re-purpose old frames before tossing them in the landfill.
