ScrapTiffany Recycled Blog Hop

Hi!  Welcome to my little scrappy web haven &
 to the Scrap Tiffany Recycled Blog Hop.
Each one of the ST designers is sharing a recycled project with you. 
If this is the first blog you have visited on the hop, please hop on over to Scrap Tiffany to start from the beginning.
Bev - http://beeceecreativity.blogspot.com/
My project started with me cleaning out our basement storage space. There was lots of stuff to throw away,  give away, or recycle.  I found a pile of old picture frames that no longer fit the style our home decor.  This cherry frame reminded me of the 7 gypsies trays I have been seeing everywhere. 


Instead of tossing it, I painted it black. 
2 coats of thick black paint.
A little sanding here and there.
A coat of poly...
& the plain cherry frame 
became a cute frame that 
matches my house decor yet again.  
But, why stop at that?
I dug into my scrappy stash.
Lots of left over bits of kits 
and embellishment packages 
were used to finish up my frame. 


I really like how this trash to treasure frame turned out.
It is pretty & feminine.  Sure beats that old frame!  

I hope you have enjoyed my recycled frame. 
 Kay is the next stop on the Scrap Tiffany Blog Hop.  
I am sure she has something lovely for you to see.  

There is a sweet prize for any one of my followers during the blog hop.
 So before you leave me to visit Kay,
be sure to become a follower, if you aren't already one,
& leave me a comment that you follow my blog. 
(you do not need to be a new follower to be in the drawing for a prize from me)
Happy Hopping!
