I love a gallery wall with black and white family portraits, artwork or landscapes all grouped together. But sometimes all that artwork in a gallery wall can look a little too busy for my taste. But a gallery wall of open frames and a few mirrors? Perfect.
In my bathroom, there is a tiny little shelf behind the bathtub area. It is a good size for holding soaps or bath salts- or stacking a couple of vintage frames on. One wasn’t enough- but two was just right. I love the gold against the red and white toile and how leaving the frames ‘naked’ without any artwork filling them- lets the wallpaper take center stage. (btw-pretty sure it must be time to take some new photos of the bathroom. Not only does it look different- this photo is not fabulous.)
Of course I am a huge fan of making chalkboards- and a vintage frames are the perfect choice for repurposing. We also made the chalkboard in the dining room and added a gold frame to it. It doesn’t have to be vintage to be pretty.
A project I just did a few weeks ago was this burlap covered cork board– and just made another one this week. A super simple way to use a vintage or favorite frame and give it a new purpose.
