Hide CaptionShow CaptionWith just a little paint, these thrift-store frames create a beautiful, uniform display.
Thrift-store frames are an inexpensive way to display a lot of photos. Lee paints them white to create a uniform look so that the photos are the feature. She also creates a uniform look for the photos themselves by scanning the family's favorite photos, applying a sepia-tone effect and then printing the photos. Choosing one style for all the photos exposes the moment that the picture captured. Reducing color also reduces visual clutter. The final touch is to create a seaside style hanger by attaching sisal rope to the back of the frames.
