Once in a while, I pass by Ikea‘s As-Is section and check out what they have. I’m always on a look out for kitchen cabinet doors because I can make so many things out of it. One example was when I made it as a frame for our carved Last Supper which is now on display in our dining room.
A few months ago, I saw this square cabinet door and I thought of making it into a picture frame. I like the idea of changing pictures whenever I feel like it. So, with a little research, I decided to put clothespins to add little fun in it.
Check out how it turned out after it was upcycled:
First, it was painted with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Graphite, brushed and decorated with FolkArt Home Decor Chalk Paint in Cascade. The sides were gilded by Renaissance Gold and the whole frame is finished with Annie Sloan Dark Wax. The clothespin is also painted.
In this picture, it was used to showcase the photos I took from my Photography Class from Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania.
Here, it was used as a Family Photo Gallery.
As for the pictures, I print it with the use of colored laser printer and laminate it for durability.
Depending on the mood or occasion, these picture frames’ versatility makes it so cool.
