Reusing Picture Frames

I had a picture frame that fell, shattering the glass but leaving the frame intact. I decided to save it and repurpose it for something. In the meantime, an inexpensive dollar store frame cracked, but the glass was fine. Both frames were the same size. I discarded the damaged frame and glass, and now put the good glass and frame together. Now I only had to discard one frame instead of both. The picture shows my new wood picture frame and the broken other picture frame.

I like to refurbish old picture frames, too. Even old rusty metal frames can be painted with acrylic paint for an antique look. I've put lace or lacy hem binding around the edges of wooden frames and gessoed or painted over it to give a carved look. I'll use one color of acrylic paint and then another color as a wash over it (letting it sit and then wiping it off).

I look for frames at rummage sales and on ebay. Mixing colors, such as any color and silver can produce a nice, unique color.

I am learning from this website that pretty much anything can be refurbished. Thanks for sharing.
