Easy Frame {Update}

Pin It
In this post, I let you tour our "new" home office.

Remember this little spot between our bookshelves?

I love this little nook! 

Let me show you how I updated the black frame.

 Easy Frame {Update}

I started out with the frame looking like this:

I like this black frame, but I already had WAY too many pictures in our office.  I knew I needed to switch it up.

I took out my super cute pictures of Miss J, and started with a blank slate.

I measured the opening of the frame....

And then cut some fabric a little wider than the opening.

(LOOOOVE this fabric!)

I just taped it to the frame backing, using super high end tape:

Just kidding.  I used plain old scotch tape.

I made sure to pull the fabric tight around the edges.

Looking good!

I found a quote I liked about faith, and printed it off on some off white card stock.  I centered it on my board, and Voila!

Much better!


  1. That looks lovely with the fabric you used.

  2. I love the way you decorated in here - and that fabric is fab, indeed (:

  3. Even if you say it was easy, it was really creative of you! What a great idea. I'm surprised that good ol' scotch tape was strong enough to hold the fabric on there!

    Found your post at the Amaze Me August party. :)
