Empty Frames: Absolutely or Ew, Never?

By Christa Terry

I think I’m done with the whole ‘empty frames as art‘ thing – and the ‘hang a little bit of craft paper in a frame and call it art’ thing. The ease of it still appeals to me. No need for matting or sizing anything or figuring out just how to hang a frame that’s meant to be displayed on a table. Just rip the whole thing apart, spray paint it white, and nail it to the wall in a some inoffensive arrangement.



What do you think – still cute? Or kind of boring?

Don’t get me wrong… I love me some DIY wall art, especially if it’s accessible to everyone. This is just one trend that I think has had its 15 minutes, and now it’s time for us all to move on to the next easy project. When I find out what that is, you’ll be reading about it.

    Yawn…with a dash of creepy. I never liked this trend.




  2. Christa Terry Says:

    I can see the creepy… INVISIBLE FAMILY PORTRAITS! GHOST RELATIVES!




  3. Michelle @ Dream Home DIY Says:

    I was JUST saying the other day how I was so tired of seeing this trend. I mean, it really is everywhere…..

    Yeah, it was cute for 5 minutes, but now it just seems lazy and overly “decorator-y.”
