I ran out of room to hang or display all the picture frames I’d been hoarding, so I decided to use the #CraftRoomDestashChallenge to upcycle them into something new! Check out how I created this upcycled picture frame box in one afternoon.
Every month a group of bloggers are challenged by me to create a new craft or project from their own stash of goodies! Check out some awesome creations you might be able to make from your own stash! #CraftRoomDestashChallenge
So, you’ll see this again in my #CraftRoomChallenge posts as well, but this is literally the stack of picture frames just chilling on a shelf in my craft room. I bought a bunch of these matching frames to use for my son’s Disneyland themed first birthday party, but I don’t have room to display them anywhere. I had a wild idea to build a planter style box out of them. I’ve seen Pinterest links to making lanterns and such things out of frames, but I wanted to try something a little different.
I collected the frames and laid out a grid plan. My idea was for a long skinny box, but I actually only had 8 frames. I could have sworn it was more!
So here is a close up of me spray painting the glass on my backyard stoop. I accidentally spray painted the stoop. I’m sure my hubby will yell, but in my defense, it is ZERO EFFING DEGREES OUTSIDE. He should just be happy I didn’t say eff it and spray paint inside the house!
SERIOUSLY BITTERLY COLD.
After a few coats, I put the glass back into the frames and finished gluing the box together.
I did originally intend to spray paint the frames themselves, but seriously….too freaking cold!! So this upcycled picture frame box took a much more modern look than originally planned.
