Turn an Old Picture Frame into a Wall Shelf

Do you have a blank wall that needs filling? I love love love this idea from Shanty 2 Chic for making shelves from old picture frames. Whitney says, “This is such simple project, and a great way to reuse old frames or to dress up cheap frames.” I bet most of us have a few old frames stashed away in a closet! Whitney built simple box frames from scrap MDF, attached them to her frames, and then paint the whole shebang. I love how they look arranged above her daughter’s desk. They are decorative but also offer storage for books and school supplies.

Whitney’s frame shelves remind me of the Vintage Hand Carved Display Shelf from Restoration Hardware.
