A Whimsical Project: Old Frame Foam Boards

This project came out of necessity and became one of my better sellers at the shop. I was in need of a cute place to put my earrings, notes and miscellaneous items. I came across this idea on another blog and began creating right away. Here is what I have done so far:
Mistint Paint from Lowes, Foam Board and Burlap - Sold
I created several of these - This one is Napoleonic Blue with French Linen dry brush, Foam Board and vintage music papers - Sold Out!!
Old Violet with vintage peach making an appearance - Fabric and Foam Board
My Current Favorite and might not stay at the shop - Antique badly damaged mirror frame. Painted in French Linen - Foam Board and Fabric
I just love this paint!
I have created a couple more in Provence but those sold before I could photograph them. You can visit these projects at Carter's Cottage.


  1. Love your frames--especially that last one!

  2. Funny I got to comment on this and the person who commented above me is my Mother and I was about the say the same thing she did! haha.. Gorgeous frames and I too LOVE the last one.

  3. I adore frames these days and all the uses for them. You've definitely made yours extra pretty! LOVE every single one of them! I'm your newest follower now!

  4. I love these! What all would you use them for? Like the French Linen one? to hang jewelry?? Notes?? Thanks for sharing, they are lovely.
