Small Frames With Flower Photos

1 Hour
I love how small, similar frames look when they are all grouped together. One tiny frame alone would be way too small on a wall, but together they have a beautiful look. And instead of having to find the perfect-sized artwork for a space, you can just add as many frames as you need to fill the space.
My girls’ room has almost no wall space to put pictures and decor, so we decided to use the small space above the closet for pictures. We happened to have 5 cute, little frames that would fit perfectly there.
The frames were 7X7 inches and matte black, so we needed silver spray paint to match their cute IKEA chandelier. We also needed 5X5 inch pictures, all with similar subjects. We found a flower calendar at the dollar store, which was perfect since were working on a flower theme for their room. It’s also perfect for spring decorating!
First we painted the frames, making sure to move around and paint from every side. With picture frames especially, you need to paint the inside edge and the outside edge on each side evenly. And always spray several light coats, so you don’t get drips.
Since the calendar had 16 pictures, we could choose 5 that worked really well. They are pictures of flowers that are not too large for the frames or too small to be seen from across the room.
We put the pictures back together: frame, glass, photo, and backing.
Here they are up on the wall above the closet. I spaced them 7-inches apart so they would fill the space evenly without feeling spread out.
We reorganized my girls’ closet a couple months ago, you can see that post at My Tween Closet Redesign. It’s a little messier now, but the organization seems to be working. Now we just need to work on something to close off the closet to make the room feel more finished. I’m thinking simple curtains. Hopefully I’ll post about those soon.
