Hey crafty friends! I’ve been working on a room makeover for my daughter over the last few months, by converting her toddler room into a “big girl” room as she requested. It took awhile to settle on a theme and colors but we eventually decided to keep the purple painted walls and add pink and turquoise decor. I struggled with figuring out what to cover her walls with, especially since she has a high ceiling. The two walls without a window are fairly large and appeared empty prior to our makeover. On one of walls I created a frame collage with magnetic frames above her dresser, providing enough decor to help fill up the bare space. I created the wall frame collage with unfinished Cut It Out frames by decorating them to fit the theme we were going for.
If you’re not familiar with Cut It Out Frames they’re a decorative frame company that offers unfinished frames, allowing you to paint them in any color you’d like. I love that a can of spray paint can transform their frames to fit any color scheme and decorative style. When I received the frames from Cut It Out I had a hard time narrowing down where I wanted to use them in our home. I’ve wanted to create a frame collage in the hallway for years but I figured I should focus on one room at a time. Anyone else like that? I have a hard time finishing a room before thinking about working on another area. So while we were working on my daughters room I figured we could use the frames in there instead. Her favorite colors are pink and purple so I knew painting the frames pink was the way to go. She loves bright, vivid colors and this was perfect for what I had in mind.
To paint the frames I applied 2-3 light coats of Krylon spray paint in Mambo Pink, allowing each coat to dry in between. Once the frames were painted I used decorated metal sheets to create a fun DIY organization frame collage. I purchased the metal sheets at Hobby Lobby and used tin snips to cut them. I marked the metal sheets to the size I needed and the tin snips cut right through the metal. I advise you to use safety gloves and protective eye gear to avoid any injuries.
Once I had the metal sheets trimmed to size I added them to the back of the frames with the metal closures and begin decorating them. For the 11×14 frame I created a magnetic board to use for keeping notes and pictures on as she gets older. I’m also a tab bit obsessed with the felt flower magnet on the board.
I’ve always liked the decorative metal jewelry frames, so even though she doesn’t have hanging earrings yet I thought it would be fun to add to her wall collage. She can also use it as a magnet board until she’s old enough to display dangling earrings from.
