Vintage, Thrifted, and Handmade Picture Frames add character to any home. 

Hi, and Welcome to LilacsNDreams! I don't know about you, but I just Love seeing different picture frames. I adore how many are so created in what they do to show them, use them, and to offer them to many of us for use with our own home decor. 

You know I use to have a bunch of picture frames, and with the cleaning, downsizing, reorganizing, etc of things in our home I got rid of many of them too. Darn! I really wish now I had not done that. Although . . . it is a good excuse for me to go shopping for them again too! You can find many unwanted picture frames when you go thrifting, at garage sales, goodwill stores, second hand shops, sometimes at estate sales, Hobby Lobby, Michaels, and etc. As you can see above there are so many possibilities of how to use picture frames, how you can repurpose them, paint them, and make them into creations that fits with the decor of your own homes. 

You can paint these frames with any color you would like, keep the glass in them for further use, remove the glass, put frames inside of frames, add some lace and wire to then use some little clips to hang things, add some vintage collectible jewelry that is either broken or missing a piece to the set, and like the second picture with the black frames you can also add other items of interest with them too. What is really neat about reusing, repurposing, upcycling, crafting, and DIY projects is that there are no rules. You can create away, and do as you please for what is fitting to you. Adding your own character, and that special touch to anything makes for a more precious item to be seen by others, and don't forget gift giving too. 

Now, if I did everything correctly with links above on these pictures you should be able to click, and visit the sites that these all came from. Use either the pictures, or the captions below them to visit with other creative souls who do some gorgeous work. I adore those who share their work for others to complete their own work, and to give many of us ideas to do our own too.

By the way, this is another item that has been added to my list for the season with thrifting, garage sales, second hand shops, and so on. Cannot wait to go shopping, and bring home some items to occupy my time with. 

Thanks so much for sharing your time with LilacsNDreams today everyone. Hope ya'll had a great weekend, wonderful Easter, and can't wait to see you all again. Take care, and Happy Thrifting and Creating!
