Thrift stores are full of old frames, most of them full of nasty old paintings or dated wall art. I usually walk right by them and hardly stop to look but I’ll be viewing those frames a lot differently after finding all these amazing ways to repurpose frames! From jewelry organizers to terrariums, you can do some pretty fabulous things with old frames!
