Vintage Framed Cork Board


This frame is awesome!


I stopped at a garage sale the other day, but it was
closing and she was putting everything to the curb!

Great timing!

 I really didn't stand there for long digging through her trash because that just wouldn't be right... but I did see 2 of the most gorgeous frames sticking out of the can!


So I grabbed them and ran!

The paintings were kind of awesome too... 
the glass was gold leafed on the back and I'm pretty sure the 
little paintings were originals.

They may have been worth a million bucks... 

but I took them apart... 
and here is the first one:

A giant 12" x 24" beauty!

A million bucks to someone!

Stay tuned for frame #2...

  1. I absolutely love that frame, Susan! It is gorgeous with its curves and detailing. Perfect for a makeover. I've been looking at frames when I go to garage sales, too. You never know what you might find that would make for a great makeover.

  3. Gorgeous! Why in the world would anyone throw that frame out or even more so, how did nobody buy it???? Their loss is definitely your gain!
