Shabby Chic Cheap...
For those of us with expensive tastes and thrift store budgets!
I found this picture high on a shelf at an out of the way thrift store.
The original brown frame distracted from the beauty of this pretty picture..
Alas, a trip to the SHABBY CHIC BEAUTY SALON is in order!
Ta Da ...frame painted white and distressed...
Below~ in its original sad condition (note $2 sticker)...

 I found a perfect spot for this darling picture by my front door
above the sofa side table...

A nice spot to dream which I have been doing a little more of lately...
Thank you for stopping by, have a lovely day and don't forget to do some dreaming...Thank you to the beautiful http://houseinroses.blogspot.com/ for hosting this Show off your Cottage party and http://fadedcharmcottage.blogspot.com/ for hosting White Wednesday! Please take a minute to visit these lovely blogs for more inspiration!

Hugs,
Olivia

  7. Hi Olivia, I love what a little paint can do!

    I bought an original painting of roses a couple of weekends ago -- the frame is silvered but a little too beat up, so i'll be giving it the spray paint treatment also.

    Lovely! and two bucks? That even beats my 5 dollar picture!

  27. What a remarkable transformation! I have often bought ugly pictures for the frames, but haven't really bought ugly frames for the pictures. The frame makeover made all the difference in the world. Thanks for giving us a fresh perspective.

    Happy hunting,
    Teresa
