Framing Inexpensive Items

Elsie and Bond getting to know one another, priceless!  It will definitely be framed and hanging in the playroom soon.

You can mix expensive and inexpensive.  I always say when you have a couple of pieces of real jewelry everyone thinks all of your jewelry is real.  Same goes with your home.  I have original art next to children's art.  Family heirlooms mixed in with an old license plate.  Have what makes you happy around you.  Remember your house is telling your story.  Here are some cheap items I have framed mostly with ikea frames.  

Chevron Drawer Liner in and Oversized Frame

A Stain Removal Chart and A Sample of Wallpaper

Pantone Post Cards

Photographs My Granddaughter Lily Took at the Zoo
Flamingo, Giraffe, and Rhinoceros 

Quilting Books Allison and I have Written

Our License Plate when the Kids were Growing Up

What can you frame to tell more of your story?

  1. Great ideas! Thanks for sharing!!!

  2. I just had to comment on your license plate. It looks so familiar. Did you live in either Long Beach or Los Alamitos area?

  3. Love the framed license plate. We have some vanity plates that I'd love to frame now. Thanks for the great idea!

  4. Hello! What size frames did you purchase for the pantone postcards?
