I recently popped in Goodwill on the first Saturday of the month, the best day to go for cheap finds because everything is half off. I found some gold glitter spray painted, and very tacky looking little frames. At first glance, “what could I do with these ugly little things?” crossed my mind. I decided to purchase them anyways knowing that it would be a rather cheap project when I eventually come up with something to do with them. I bought a stack of square and rectangular frames. Here’s what I ended up making…
This is what they looked like when I purchased them.
Then I sanded the glitter and gold paint off.
I created some art in photoshop to have printed.
I used png files in photoshop and some apps on my phone to create the “art”. I simply had them printed at Walgreens from the Walgreens app after posting them to my Insta account: @thegogocreative (just started this for my projects. Dedicated to art, DIY projects, repurposing, photography and finding beauty in less suspected places).
Then I got out my two old cans of wood stain and started to experiment.
I’m still waiting for more prints to be delivered for my 4×6 frames, but I’m totally in love with the hipster-esq square frames and art that is in them. I’m selling these individually for $12 each. Two are pending sale already after just posting them. If you are interested you can find me on Instagram @thegogocreative or comment on this post.
If I don’t sell them…well I guess they will just go into my collection of way-too-much-stuff-on-my-walls! Ha!
With love and creativity,
