Frame of Mine

Using large picture frames to highlight your photos is a unique way of keeping all those pictures current and interesting.

It does not have to be a vintage frame and it does not have to be gray. Take a brightly colored frame or paint it, line string across from side to side, clip with colored paperclips or laundry clips and you have a fun way to perk up your space.

Take a Load Off

Here is an idea to increase seating in your dorm room or small apartment and also add to your storage. Books, shoes, sweaters, extra sheets or blankets can be placed inside the crates for storage, while a cushioned top compliments your decor and adds to your seating.

Milk crates come in many colors, but they can also be spray painted to a color of your choice.
