I am linking this post to Tales of Bloggeritaville for Thrifty Thursday .
So everywhere I go I am looking for shadow box frames. I do not care what is on the inside, if it is cheap and can be opened up, I buy it.
Recently I found the first three at a thrift shop for $1.00 each. I could not beleive these nice wood shadow box frames with paper red roses were that cheap. On the back of each one of them is the price tag of $12.99 and they had come from target. I am going to keep them with the roses until after Valentines.
The other ones I have purchased mostly from yardsales and the most I spent was $3.00 for the large blue one with the bathroom scene. Most of the others were $1.00 including the 2 matching ones that came from ikea and are still wrapped in the shrink wrap. I do not know what the original price was, but I would not think they were cheap.
My some day project is to take them apart, paint each one white and chippy them up a bit, line with burlap and place some of my shells in them. I am really excited about this except for the part of trying to make them all into a grouping on one wall. That intimidates me a little. I think if they were all one size and shape it would be easier, but we will see. This will be a very thrifty wall displaly because I paid so very little for the frames and have collected some nice shells from yardsales, thrift stores and auctions. I will be putting one special shell in each frame. Thanks for stopping by and hope the weather is better in you neck of the woods than in ours!!! ~~Sherry~~
