Thrifting Thursday: Green Frame

Often I like to improve or update a thrifted find in some way. But, sometimes they need no facelift or sprucing up at all.  This frame is a good example.  I love how the paint is worn off and chipped in places.  And this perfect shade of green is what caught my eye.

I bought this frame in a little antique mall, downtown Bakersfield.  I paid $8 for it.  That seems kind of pricey when I actually write it down.  But, that's the beauty of thrifting.  Because I save on so many other things, like my $1.42 tray, I can afford to spend a little more on other fun finds.


It's a little bigger then a  5X7" frame, so I just backed my picture with a some grey card stock.  The Paris ladies in waiting wasn't my style, so my cute kids replaced it.  Oh, if the original image appeals to you (it's from the 1940's), let me know, maybe I can send it your way.

What have you found thrifting lately?  Leave a link in my comments so I can check out your finds.  


  1. What did you do with the pretty print that was in the frame? It looks very "Little Women". :)

  2. @Jodi, I've done nothing with the print yet.
