I had a few pieces of scrapbook paper that I just loved but could not think of what to do with them. While working on the magazine holders that I showed you the other day, I got a little sidetracked, this happens to me all the time. I thought that it might be a good idea to add a picture to our bookcase in the office. I did not have any artwork and did not want to spend any extra money going out to purchase something.
What I decided to do was frame a piece of scrapbook paper!
I had some frames sitting around in the closet that my husband had purchased on clearance and decided that they would be perfect for this. The frames were black and the picture of the pretty bird (isn't that bird pretty) would look better in a lighter frame.
I pulled out some paint (Martha Stewart Heavy Cream from Home Depot) and painted the frame. The Scrapbook paper was 12x12 so I had to but it down to fit the frame. Once the frame was dry I assembled everything together and added it to my bookcase, or otherwise known as cookbook storage bookcase (I am obsessed with cookbooks).
I think it looks perfect. The great thing about this idea is that you can change the paper when you get bored of the one that you used and the cost to change it is about a dollar!
Look at that pretty bird. I don't really care for the bookcase, but the framed bird paper I really do love.
Oh and did you see these photoboxes in the other picture. I will be showing you how to pretty up these photoboxes soon as well.
What are you working on right now?
