Whenever I have items I no longer want that are in good shape, I take them to a local resale shop that benefits a good cause. The Sunshine Shop benefiting Hospice is my favorite. I dropped my bags off this morning and couldn't resist looking around. And, of course, I found a few items to bring home with me. Please don't tell my sister! ;) Check out the REAL WOOD frames and shelf I scored!
Imagine all the frames and shelf painted a crisp white. Or maybe painted all black. Or maybe painted all robin's egg blue. Or maybe a mixture of all those. Imagine black and white photos in the frames. Or coordinating pieces of scrapbook paper. Maybe one of them could be a mini-chalkboard. Check out what The Nester did with a collection of frames in her living room.

So the moral of my story is check out thrift stores for unique, inexpensive finds. If you haven't been to a thrift store before, you may feel a little weird at first. But forget about that and dive in to find some great pieces that you can use some elbow grease and cheap supplies to make fabulous!!!
P.S. I promise to show y'all the pictures of the finished grouping after I've pittered and glinked them! ;)
