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.

Looks absolutely great. Love the color of your room and the frames add so much because they are so graphic!

Craigslist's free section is great! I also keep an eye on freecycle.org.

Fabulous in the black. I'm still trying to decide what color to paint my window frames. They are patiently awaiting my decision.

What cool graphic shapes for your wall! I love how that looks. So excited to hear that you're painting the others my favorite color! :)

Gorgeous! My friend just pulled 10 windows out of someone else's trash lol and is offering them around. Think I could snag 3???? I actually love the horizontal lines of these that you found. Very pretty.
