Shabby White Frames and Vintage Lithographs – the Perfect Combination

Well creative people – what did you do with your shabby chic up-cycled frames that I hope you made after following my three part blog post last year? My frames were hanging about the workshop for months waitng patiently for me to find the right images. AT LAST – I found the perfect solution!

The images are from a 19th century book of  lithographs. The book was too damaged to keep as a whole, and I bought it with wall art in mind – the book may be damaged, but the images were hiding there ready to see the light of day.

My plan is to a grouping of these shabby white frames and their lithographs ready for a wall hanging. What a difference to see these bits of Victoriana in nice light pale frames, such a difference to the thin black narrow frames that you normally see these black and white images in. Up-cycling is the name of the game in today’s modern interior decor.

Here are a few more of my Shabby Chic DIY Frames that have received the same treatment. Now, Which wall to use?

Living & working in the hidden depths of South West France making photo and picture frames in our little studio at the bottom of the garden AND restoring a big old stone house - hard work, but totally enjoyable!
