Framed Objects by the.

Before I set off into the wilderness (camping!!!) I wanted to share another top pick from NYIGF. Have a great weekend everyone and wish me luck! No snakes, no snakes... that's all I'm asking for.

I love the idea of using everyday objects as art. Have you recently splurged on a pair of killer shoes? Here's another way to justify shelling out the money by turning them into a masterpiece. For someone as fickle as me, this would be a perfect way to display my current obsessions...


Did the shoe purchase wipe you out? I know. No probs, why not draw some inspiration and try a make your own solution. With a little imagination, I'm sure you can come up with something just as fab. Maybe purchase a couple of frames and other objects from a rummage sale, remove glass, and either staple gun or heavy-duty glue on a thin piece of wood or better yet - recycle some cardboard/box and cut it to size for the backing. Attach display elements by sourcing a small shelf (you can always give IKEA a try if you can't find the right size), half moon vase or something similar and hooks are definitely easy to find. Spray paint it white or whichever color you like.

Either way, I love this idea.
