Repurposed Farmhouse Frames - Raggedy Bits

Repurposed Farmhouse Frames

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 thingsΒ 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!

Think twice before you throw out your old pictures! Using some frames that I already had and were dated, I turned them into Repurposed Farmhouse Frames. Full tutorial. | www.raggedy-bits.com

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 stabledΒ 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:Β 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 am still in the designing stage of where I want to hang these Repurposed FarmhouseΒ Frames! I will be sure to be writing a blog post about it and will share what they look like hung on the wall.

  1. 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.

  2. 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] πŸ˜‰

    1. 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 πŸ™‚

    1. 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!!! πŸ™‚

  3. 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~

    1. 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” πŸ™‚

  4. 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”.
