Last (but not least) in our guest line up comes from Michelle of 4 men 1 lady. With Scott being one of three brothers, I’m often intrigued by the chaos that must have been his mom’s life – I might have asked him how his mother came out as sane and sweet as she is, you know, with three boys and the dude I call my father-in-law (love ya, Dave!). Michelle’s life is just that, a mother to three male kiddos and a husband that surely basks in her creative nature. Really, this woman is Talented (and yes, that T caps was intentional). With a recent move underway (see her former house tour right here), we can’t wait to watch the magic (ooh, ahh) unfold.
I have a love for old and vintage frames. I always look out for them at flea markets, garage sales, antique and thrift stores. Here are a few ways I’ve transformed them.
With the addition of spray paint, peg board and hooks, I turned this antique frame in to a jewelry board:
I took the mirror out of this gold frame, spray painted the frame white, added cork board and burlap to make a message board:
My stainless steel fridge isn’t magnetized so I can’t hang kids art on the it. Instead, I sprayed these frames, hung them in the hall and now my kids have a special place to display their art:
My mother-in-law gave me this mirror. (Shhhh, don’t tell her I transformed it…she may not aprove):
I took the mirror out…
Then sprayed it with chalkboard spray paint.
Next I cut up a burlap rice sack in my pantry and turned it inside out.
I affixed it to cork board and put it back in the top portion of the frame.
Now I have a message center where I can pin notes up in the top and write messages below on the chalk board:

Thank you, Michelle!
The older styled frames have such great details but I am not a fan of that brass color (probably because growing up that’s what all our fixtures were). I love how all the frames were changed – especially that jewelry board!
Gorgeous transformation! I love that you didn’t paint the frame of it and really looks great next to the chalk board portion of the piece! Great job!
What an awesome transformation. Two purposes in one.

I’m loving the transformation…but I also loved the cutie patootie reflected in it’s mirror too…;) What can I say,…I’m a sucker for chubby cheeks…:)
Who knew you could spray paint mirrors? LOVE it to the millionth power!
