My husband and I have recently been doing some spring cleaning in the garage and that’s when I made my discovery. There in the corner was a dust-covered box full of old picture frames that I had intended to use for crafts but had completely forgotten about! At some point or another, the frames had migrated out of my home either because I no longer wanted to display the picture or because the frame was no longer my style. Either way, I’m left with WAY more picture frames than I could ever use on my walls! But rather than donate, sell or toss them, I’ll reuse them for a different, decorative purpose in the house.
16 Ways to Reuse and Relove Picture Frames
(other than for pictures)
2. Picture Frame Dry Erase Board
3. Picture Frame Cork Board
4. Picture Frame Memo Board
11. Empty Picture Frames as Art
Even if you no longer like the color of a frame, you can still make it work if you’re willing to paint it. And if you don’t have any extra frames lying around, go to discount retail stores like TJ Maxx, HomeGoods or Marshalls to look for cute frames at reasonable prices. Be sure to look in the art section as well because you can sometimes get framed art for less than the cost of an empty frame and you can always remove the art if you don’t like it.
