Empty Frames on my Wall

I have really been digging the trend of hanging a group of empty frames on a bare wall.  I have slowly been purchasing some frames to do this in my craft room and it's finally finished.  As I mentioned before, I wanted to make my craft room super girly, since I don't really have any other place I can do that.  I'm quite out-numbered, you know.  Anyhow, here's the magenta frame wall.


Some were as cheap as 99 cents.  The fancy one was a splurge from Hobby Lobby.  I used a coupon on that sucker.  It's my favorite and I think it makes the wall.  Remember how the playroom has the peek-a-boo door to the craft room?  Click HERE to see what I'm talking about.  Well my dad framed out the opening of it, so it blends with all the other frames.  Cool, huh? 


It just slides open so they can spy on me.


The craft room is almost done now.  I have a couple little projects to add and a little more organizing to do.  Just having the room more put together gives me more motivation to craft and get things done.


Well, that's all for today.  Thanks for stopping in.

I can't say enough about that spy door. It's awesome! I wish I had that when I was a kid. It's perfect! I love how the frames turned out. You'll have to give me a few tips for my stairway. I've been thinking of doing the same thing-- but with mirrors.

I think I'm going to do this too - not just because it's interesting, but because I have so many frames and it's an attractive way to store them until I have a the right art to go inside. It's a 2 for 1. But your frame wall really looks lovely.

That is the cutest picture of Bade looking thru the frame. What a cute idea. Also, I need to vote for your great idea but I cannot find a link to your craft corner thingamagig. Let me know,

Cute cute! I totally thought you had just put one picture of Baden in all those frames! It just didn't make sense until I read your post:).

I love those! It's gorgeous. If I had an ounce of room left, I'd do it. Oh wait. . . thinking on the hallway. . .

Wendy said...

Holy cow, I love the wall, and LOVE that you have a disguised peek-a-boo door!!

(I also went back and looked at your before and after of the playroom-- wow! Quite an amazing transformation. Well done!)

I'm tellin' you, the next house we build will be complete with secret passages and hidden doors. I was a total Nancy Drew girl.

Cool idea! I love that it's so simple. And the sliding window is a surprising effect :).

This is a seriously cool idea. Dang. What a cool parent you are. Hmm. I really should know another work for cool. Groovy? No, that is not the direction I want to go. Now I just sound silly. But really, this entire idea is, well, cool. I'm so glad I found your blog today!
