Fabulous & Frugal Fun: The Frame Game

Empty frames are such common finds at flea markets and garage sales that they are often overlooked when they don't have their center of attraction. But a gorgeous frame is a gorgeous frame, encasing a painting or mirror, or not. I love the mysterious yet whimsical effect that Simply Grove's Kristen Grove of Boise, Idaho, achieved when she leaned two empty ornate frames against her bedroom wall among a set of fabulous mirrors.

For more unexpected uses for everyday discoveries, pick up The Find: The Housing Works Book of Decorating with Thrift Shop Treasures, Flea Market Objects, and Vintage Detailsat Borders, Barnes & Noble, Amazon or Powell's.

Always Frugal, Always Fabulous!
