frame collage

I've been working on my kids bathroom which had a big blank wall.  

I wanted to bring in different colors and textures, so I did a frame collage.

For this frame I made a little printable in Picnik. Then I hand cut patterned paper into a pennant shape. 

For the others, I framed patterned paper in shades of yellow and my fave- grey chevron.  
  • The white frames were originally wood.  I painted them aqua blue and then put white on top.  After the paint was dry, I sanded them down to reveal the many layers.  
  • The black frame is from Goodwill.  The mat that came with it was hunter green, so I spray painted it white.

I found this big frame at Goodwill.  I painted a few coats of chalkboard paint right onto the glass.  Then sanded the frame to shabby it up a little.  I will use it to write love notes and reminders to my kids.

A fun little addition to a blank wall and an easy project for Spring!
