So if you've been reading the blog, you'll remember when I shared my Treasure Hunting Finds, here. Today I'm going to show you how I managed a Thrift Store Flip on a gold frame I found at Goodwill Thrift Store for $5!
So I picked up this frame from the Goodwill a few weeks ago! I'd been looking for just the right size piece to fit on the wall space above my kitchen sink and I found it for the low price of $4.99!!! Gotta love a deal!
And then the frame sat in my garage for at least a week! Cause my husband just loves that sort of thing! NOT!!!! hehehe
The next time I was at a craft store I browsed the scrapbook page section and found some patterned paper I liked. I picked out two different styles and settled with this one. So I took the glass out of the frame and wrapped the board in the paper just like you would a Birthday present.
From there I dug out all the old recipe books and cards that I had sorted through while I was at my Dad's house this past summer. I managed to pick out three recipes that my amazing Grandma had once handwritten! My Grandma passed away while I was in high school so I love having a little piece of her in my kitchen. I get teary eyed just thinking of how much I'd love to see her with my kids! Her and my daughter, Lauren, would be best friends!
I love how the gold frame goes together with the paper and the old recipes but I don't have a plan for gold in my kitchen (The pulls on my cabinet doors are currently gold and I hate them and plan on changing them soon!). So I pulled out my trusty green spray paint! The same can I used to paint a different frame and turn it in to a menu board for my kitchen.
Then I put a few nails in the wall and hung my frame! And now I have an awesome new kitchen decoration that's very personal to me and a way to preserve the recipes and remember my late Grandmother! Way better than just having all those recipe cards shoved in a drawer in the kitchen. Totally worth the $5 for an awesome Thrift Store Flip!
Are your grandparents still in your life? What special things do you do so you can pass on their memory to your own children?
