So, have you heard? Curbly is releasing a new ebook next week, Make It! Secondhand Chic. In it Chrisjob, ModHomeEcTeacher and I scoured our favorite second-hand haunts and came up with 14 very cool and inspiring makeovers (if I do say so myself!) that will have you rummaging through rummage too! One of my projects featured in the book uses picture frames. Since I'm under strict no-giveaways rules, I can't tell you much about it. I will say, however, that the black picture frame, shown above, didn't make the cut because of its shape. (Not much of a hint, huh?) Because I CAN'T let a thing go to waste, even a second-hand thing, I put my reusable thinking cap on and decided to use my rejected reject to make a super simple floating frame. Here's what you'll need to make one:
The thrift store. It's eco-friendly. It's cheap. And most importantly. the limitations force you to work creatively.
So, take CasaSugar's approach and go for it: use those second-hand gems as central items in your decor. You may be surprised.
