Free is very good price!

I am linking up to Reinvented's Trash to Treasure Tuesday. This is my first time linking up a blog post - I hope it works!!

Since we moved in, I have been completely stumped about what to do with our 16 foot wide wall in the living room. I painted it "sunnybrook farm" by Ace and then had no idea what to hang on it.

A couple weeks ago, I got these rustic glassless window frames for FREE (found them in the free section of Craigslist - I check it everyday!). Here's what they looked like after I hosed them down (I forgot to take a before cleaning picture).

I painted three of them black and hung them in the living room. Note the pile of birthday presents on my great grandma's desk - Evie will be one in 3 days!!

The other two I spray painted (first time I ever spray painted) "heirloom white" - which I've read about in so many blogs. And those will hang on the wall above my bed - awaiting hubby help! I will post pictures of those when they are hung. Anyways, I love how these look empty. Before hanging them I contemplated putting fabric or scrapbook paper or even photos in them but for now, I am going to leave them empty.
