Let's "Chunk" the framing up...

I had this picture framed in my room, just leaning against the wall, but it was missing something. I have a fascination with this picture. It's not completely my style, but I still love it. Mostly in part because I got it at the Dollar Tree. Yes, you did read that right. I found this picture (which is a poster) at my local store and paid $1 for it. I brought my prize home and it fit perfectly into a frame I already had. I spray painted the frame and attached the brown ribbon.

(This was all about a year ago)

Then...we had a garage sale last weekend. And my dearest friend Betsey did it with me. And she brought way too many really cute items to sell. And a good portion of them ended up in my house. I don't think my husband is going to let me have garage sales with her anymore.

Enter the old chunky window frame with amazing, original patina.

I hung the window frame on the wall and tied the ribbon around the top, centering the picture in the middle of it. Now it looks like a custom art piece. No one would suspect that I paid $6+ a few things on hand for it!

It's a fun addition while I try to add some splashes of yellow (the honey tone) into my room.
