A couple of weeks ago I showed you a large frame I bought at a yard sale.
I bought the frame because I have a specific project in mind for it. However, that project is kind of far down my list of things to do right now. Do you know that feeling?
And if you are like me, space is always an issue in my home. If it is something I am going to use, fine. but, to just store it until I have time to get around to dealing with it, not so fine.
I have always liked to use interesting frames as trays for centerpieces. Whether on the dining room table or in the living room. Since the dining room table and the coffee table are used all the time here, it helps if my centerpieces are mobile. I need to move them out of the way easily.
One of the best things about frames like this as display trays is they can be changed up so quick and easy.
And it was time to change out the shell/blue/silver things I had on my coffee table.
I have a set of these red/pink/orange placemats and I thought the colors were rich enough for a fun change up.
Just pop off the back of the frame and slide the placemat into position. What is fun about this is you can use anything you already have.
- pieces of fabric
- pretty wrapping paper
- decorative tissue paper
This is such a quick, easy and thrifty way to change out a simple frame. Think about all the fun looks you could get for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas etc.
You just push the backing of the frame back into place over your fabric.
I picked up these grapevine pumpkins recently at a thrift store. They were brand new with tags. The thrift store price was .99 cents and then I got an additional 25% off that.
A few of you have emailed me and asked where this store is. It is in Southgate Michigan on Dix Road.
So, there you have it. A way to use and change up a frame you bought for a project redo. Until I have time to actually do my project with this frame, I will use it in different ways as a tray.
