DIY: Framed!

After a couple trips to our nearby Goodwill’s, I finally scored the perfect and inexpensive frame for the letter artwork in Landon’s room.

If you remember, it looked like this:

Naked, huh?


Since this is kids room art, I didn’t want to spend a lot of money to frame it and many custom frames for a canvas of this size run $50, $100 and up.  I’m not naïve enough to think that anything in this room isn’t going to take some bumps, kicks and other thrashings, so it was important to keep it cheap.

Enter my amazing $10 Goodwill find.  Yes, this beauty finished the piece – it’s amazing what a $4 can of charcoal gray spraypaint can do.

And here is the final project:

It looks finished now, doesn’t it?!

Anyone else score amazing “junk” at Goodwill and find a great re-use for it?  “One man’s trash…”
