When is a frame not a frame?

When it's repurposed, upcycled or reengineered, of course.

Got some old frames collecting dust and taking up space in your closets? Unless you plan to open an art gallery anytime soon, maybe re-envisioning them as something else will perk up your home, save you some moola, and crown you a genius among family, neighbors and friends.


This hang-up is no problem...



So head on over to Margo's Junkin Journal 
for a complete  towel-bar tutorial.


Turn a new corner...



And check out this Cubist-inspired bulletin board


Tap into your shadowy side...


...with a funky shadowbox to house a collection. 
See/read more about this Jersey Shore home on Completely Coastal.
Check out this helpful frame/shadowbox tutorial.


Put jewelry to work...



...and use it to decorate your dressing table. 
Some pieces are just too pretty not to be admired daily.
See more storage solutions on Cool Mom Picks.


Go to the head of the bed...



This would work in a horizontal orientation too. 
Find instructions at HGTV. David A. Land photo.


1 + 1 = another great idea...



The repainted frames and candleholders on the left (from Dishfunctional Design
combine to make tabletop gallery frames like those on the right (from Dirt Road Decor). 
Glue a craft store wood knob to the top, paint to match, fill with images or display empty.


How about a change of scenery?



Frame a vintage or cherished possession (left, from A Cultivated Nest), 
or call attention to a terrific view (right, from Design Sponge). 
Yes, I know the frame on the right is an old window, but a frame would work, too.


You can even 'bundle up'...


...Frame on frame on frame makes for funky, fabulous texture. 
I found these on Elle Dee Studio.


The weekend starts NOW! Come Monday morning, I want to see what you made.
