Metamorphis Monday – Repurposed Pictures

Welcome to Metamorphis Monday......


Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit.  Another thank you to Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for hosting this fun party again this week. 


Some time last year I purchased these two pictures on clearance for $3.97 each at one of my all time favorite stores, Kirklands.  OK, maybe it was it was a little longer that a year..........  Anyway, I liked the frames, but was not so much loving the pictures of the flowers, especially since they each had a month printed on them (top left hand corner on each one of them). 




 See, they were really $3.97, you just cannot walk away from that!!  That really is a steal....






I thought they would be great to use or repurpose for something else.  So, I added these to the never ending many, many, many outstanding projects that I currently have going on!!  Jeez, please tell me I am not the only one that takes so long to complete & finish a project? 

So.... recently I changed my bedroom furniture up a bit, it used to look like this:

 Now, it looks like this:




I thought that the wall above the bed & lamps was looking a little bare, and searched the stores for something to put above the lamps, but absolutely no luck!  So then, I remembered these frames that I purchased and decided to finally create something out of them. 


I went over to one of my other favorite stores, Hobby Lobby, and bought some scrapbook paper, two little crosses, and went to town creating new pictures. 



I simply cut down the scrapbook paper to fit in the picture area, Mod Podged it down, and hot glued the crosses down.  Violla.......... 

 The flash on my camera makes the frames look a bit more goldy than they actually are....




Here is the finished project hung up.  I really am satisfied with my final project, it adds something to the wall, and does not make it look to cluttered. 


Can you spot two sleepy dogs in this picture, one stands out a little bit more than the other......





Again, thank you to Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for hosting.   She hosts Metamorphis Monday every week if you are interested in particpating, or if  you want to see some really great projects. Please stop by and pay this talented lady a visit.

Have a fabulous week!!

Your new headboard is fabulous... love the leather (?) wood combination, so luxurious.

And, I am seriously impressed about the pictures. I have seen people doing that out here in blogland and keep wondering why I haven't gotten around to it. Thanks for another reminder. I really like the idea of just a simple cross and of the dimensional look.
