$10 Goodwill Frame Upcycle

$10 Goodwill Frame Upcycle


A few weeks ago I noticed these framed prints at Goodwill. 


For whatever reason, one of them was priced at $5 and the other one was just $3. I asked the cashier what the difference in them was (and if they’d consider taking $3 for each of them), and sure enough brought them home for just $6, total.


I’ve seen so many pretty botanical and patterned prints in the Ballard Designs Catalog (I love that store!) , but there’s no way I could justify shelling out nearly $200 for the set. (Especially just to hide in our bathroom!) The frames were in decent shape, I liked the linen matte that they already had, so all I had to do was switch out the print to make it match our home.


So, I took these two apart, purchased $8 in fabric at Joann’s (after my 30% off coupon), and came out with two prints that are perfect to add some color to our walls.




(I use my hot glue gun for everything – since I couldn’t convince my husband to hunt down his staple gun in the garage, I used hot glue to put it all back together.) 😉

Here’s what I spent: 

  • Goodwill frames – $6
  • Fabric – $4
  • Total = $10 – woohoo!



If you’re looking for inexpensive ways to fluff up your walls at home, I’m telling you what . . . a trip to your local thrift store is so worth it. If you’ve seen anything fun at your local Goodwill or thrift store recently I’d love to hear about it ~ leave a comment to share!

I’d love for you to join me over on Pinterest (I love that place!)  If you have a blog and have done a little fluffing in your home, I’d love to see it, so leave your link in the comments section. Also, if there’s a craft you’ve seen on a website that you’re hoping to make, feel free to share that link as well (I’m always looking for new ideas!)

  1. Love the transformation!

  2. I just found this site WOW it is amazing thank you. I want to be able to do some of this stuff and never knew how. This picture idea is so nice! I need to be taught how to do this stuff. I am going to sign up as a beginner. Thank you again. Cindy

  3. Wow! I may have to do that. We’ve been really blessed with our Goodwill. A month ago I found two stunning black and white photographs already matted and framed in perfect, not-a-ding-on-them frames. $8 each and signed. Yesterday I found a third photo, matted with no frame. Also signed by a local photographer. I wandered over to frames and snagged one that fit the picture perfectly. Rang in under $7. Now I have three gorgeous photos that would have cost me hundreds new. It’s not always that good of a find, but when it is it makes my week.
    We also buy blankets for our dogs there instead of expensive pet beds.
