Alright, we are now back to our regular scheduled programming of home goodies and such. Yes! A few weeks ago, I wandered into our neighbor’s yard and then found myself rummaging through his trailer. It was filled with junk, and you know who loves a pile of junk. Me:).
I emerged from the trailer with this little beauty. I brought it home and Kyle asked where I found it. He immediately called me a trespasser and was so embarrassed to hear that his wife was in her slippers, standing in the dirty trailer, picking through junk. I will admit that it’s not a very pretty picture, but I have to think it was all worth it because I am in love with this frame.
I am eventually going to either cover it with fabric or turn in into a little chalkboard or corkboard for my non-existent office, but for now, I decided to do some repairs and use it as a little photo display. This is just a temporary and cheap fix…
First, I unscrewed the worn wood from the back of the frame. Then, it was time to repair a few cracks - nothing that a little tape and wood glue can’t fix! I carefully glued the broken pieces back together and secured them with tape. I let the frame sit for a few hours until the frame felt sturdy again and the wood glue appeared dry and clear.
Since I haven’t exactly decided what I’m doing with the frame for good, I decided to use craft wire and create my own photo display.
The wire is really easy to work with and use, and it’s fairly heavy duty too. Next, I rounded up a few old photos and random items I had around the house and searched for as many mini clothespins as I could find and started arranging the items on the wire. And that’s it! A mini photo display is born.
For all about zero dollars, it’s a decent little find.
