This is the detail of a beautiful old picture frame that I picked up at an estate auction for $2!
This thing is huge!
I added some corkboard and made pins out of old buttons.

I picked up this old picture frame at an estate auction for $2! The detail of the tree branches and leaves is beautiful. I didn't repaint the frame. It was too pretty in its original form. I simply added cork material and made push pins out of old buttons. Very simple project.

Another bidder won the pile and then picked up some other item from the pile and started to walk away. I ran after him and asked if I he wanted the frame. He said no so I offered him a couple of dollars for it. He said I didn't have to pay him anything, but I felt that I should give him something since I was bidding against him. I was more than happy to give him $2! Posted: 10:44 pm on June 27th
