I began the daunting task a while ago giving my house a whole new look. For many years I have always loved Primitive Style Country with gingerbreads and raggedy dolls from one room to the next and thought that I would never get tired of seeing it. Well, it’s happened!!! Whilst I have kept some things and passed on others, I kept these 3 frames as I LOVE the timber and the tin backing. So rather than get rid of them I thought that I would spruce them up and give them a repurposed farmhouse frames look!
Repurposed Farmhouse Frames

- Old Pictures
- A4 White Cardstock
- Mod Podge
- Paint Brush
- Farmhouse Printables
Firstly I removed the wooden hearts that were at the base of two of the frames. They were easy to pop out as they had just been stabled on. Cut out your sayings to size. I had two 8’x10′ pictures and one 5’x7′.
Then I peeled off the existing prints. I did contemplate painting the frames white but felt that they would blend into the walls to much so left the timber as it is! Cut out each saying to size.
Then I applied a generous amount of Mod Podge and stuck each saying to each frame.
HANDY HINT: Make sure you have your frames up the right way before sticking them down so that they are up the right way when you hang them!
I tried to think of words that I would like to see in my home and make it feel welcoming!
I love having company! Working from home can sometimes be quite isolating , so be aware when you come to visit I probably won’t let you go! LOL 😉
I am still in the designing stage of where I want to hang these Repurposed Farmhouse Frames! I will be sure to be writing a blog post about it and will share what they look like hung on the wall.
I was really happy with how they turned out and can’t wait to get them on the wall! I’m pretty sure that by repurposing these frames I have saved myself over $100! Feel free to share any of your big saves in the comments below as I love to hear from you 🙂
Don’t have time to make now? Be sure to PIN for later 🙂
These turned out so cute and I love the saying you chose for each frame. Great job Sam.
Sam I love the tin look of the background of the frames. It gives a real edge to the look. And of course, the sayings on there are perfect to welcome your friends to your house. I’m going to look forward to your home transformation.
Very lovely Sam! Love that tin background, it’s so cool! I love to decorate with words and these are so nice to see on the wall! [or where ever you’ll decide they will go] 😉
Thank you Katrin! I know what you mean! When my kiddies were little I always had positive words around! 🙂
I LOVE THEM!!! Ok…so I will come stay with you so you aren’t lonely!!! I have always and forever wanted to visit Australia!!!
Awww thank you, Kellie! That would be AWESOME!!! Could you imagine the fun we would have!!! 🙂
Nice job – I love these frames! Thanks for sharing on the Pleasures of the NW’s DIY party!
Thank you, Helen! 🙂
So adorable! You did a fantastic job on making these. 🙂
Thank you, Carol! I was rather happy with how they turned out! Thank you for stopping by 🙂
Are you perching in my mind? I love corrugated tin. LOVE IT! I am swooning over these, and I have to figure out how to make them. Blue is my favorite color and I love the graphics you’ve used. You’ve pulled everything I love into one piece! I can’t wait to see it hanging in your home!
Awww thank you so much, Nikki for all of your sweet words!! I can’t wait either! I think that I have the right spot and then change my mind! LOL 🙂
Sam, I totally love these! Thanks so much for sharing! Pinning.
Hi Sam, Love how your DIY turned out! Pinned & shared. Thanks for joining the #InspiraitonSpotlight party!
Thank you, Theresa for having me and also sharing! 🙂
Sam, they look adorable!! Love you used the tin behind the prints, I’m sure they would look great at any place of your house
Thank you so much Pili! They still haven’t made it on the walls yet!! I keep changing my mind!! LOL 🙂
This is adorable. I have seen frames like this and never thought I could do something else with it. I love this so much and would love it if you could share at a link party I am co-hosting. I hope to see you there. http://diy180site.blogspot.com/2016/09/dishing-it-and-digging-it-link-party-112.html
Thank you, Vanessa! I will be sure to pop on over 🙂
What a cute update!! You said to make sure you glue them the right direction…does that mean you pulled one of my tricks? 😉 lol!! Thank you sharing at TaDa Thursday!!
Thank you, Susanne! LOL!! It was an ALMOST opps and thought to myself that I had BEST write that in my post so no one does make the mistake! LOL Not to say that I haven’t done it in the past!!! 🙂
I love the idea of re-purposing old frames. You did a great job with these!
Thank you so much, Lynne! So many wonderful things that you can do with repurposing! I just get such a kick out of saving things!
Super Cute~ I applaud you for changing them out rather than stashing them for when you love primitives again and getting something new. It reminds me of tossing size 10 clothes after losing weight because you aren’t going back…you are committed to your new style~
Thank you, Debbie!! I always try to reuse things where I can. We live in such a disposable world now and so many good things go to waste because they are no longer “on trend” 🙂
These signs are super cute. I am going to take a double look at everything I had planned for donating this week. I am amazed at this and wondering if I could design something with some of my “giveaways”.
Thank you, Pamela! I’m sure you could and they will turn out fabulous!! Thank you so much for stopping by 🙂
As always, these are super cute! I love the tin backing. You are always such an inspiration!
Aww, thank you, Carolann! That is so sweet of you to say that!
