I am always scouting out old frames at the thrift store. There wasn’t anything special about this thrift store picture frame until I gave it a simple little makeover for Spring. I love vintage Spring decor and this little DIY was the perfect addition to the other pieces in my home.
With a few basic supplies and a thrift store frame, you too can have your own piece of vintage Spring decor.
Supplies for Spring Thrift Store Frame
- Old frame
- Rubber floral stamp (see picture)
- Ink pad
- White, Green, Orange Paint
- Dollar Tree Carrot Cutout
- Hot glue
- Paint brush
Y’all this frame cost a whopping $0.50! It doesn’t get much better than that! Thrift stores can be your most valuable resource for home decor. Think outside of the box and try to imagine it with a new purpose or a fresh coat of paint.
In this case, this little frame was a great size and only needed a bit of distressing with sandpaper for a little charming touch of age.
The next and perhaps the most important part of the Spring thrift store frame DIY is painting the backing white. I prefer to use the Waverly chalk paint in Plaster.
You can discard the glass for this project. You wont be needing it.
This next step, I like to call stamp layering. I love to use a mixture of floral and text stamps layered on top of one another to create a vintage paper-like effect.
Seriously, I’m obsessed. Isn’t it beautiful??? It is a great way to get a vintage feel in a couple simple steps.
The next step I forgot to photograph but you can see the Spring thrift store frame VIDEO TUTORIAL for an exact step by step.
In short, I painted one of the seasonal wood shapes from the Dollar Tree and added a rag-type bow using fabric scraps for the carrot top.
