Upcycled photoframes - by Debb

In my neck of the woods you've got to be well cashed up to afford photo frames. I'm not sure why, but even the simplest ones are expensive. The second hand store, on the other hand, sells frames from 50 cents to a few dollars. Bargain! Sure, they're a little rough around the edges, dirty or in need of TLC. But that's the joy of it, because with a little sand paper, paint and creative resuccitation they can be brought back to life in a jiffy. A cluster of frames upcycled thus now grace our walls. I cut 'photo mats' out from simple pieces of white cardboard and printed the pix on my home printer using photo paper. No need to say, I'll be on the look out for more frames next time I drop by my fave' second hand store.
