MY THOUGHTS -
I actually really like this book. I didn't think I would, but the more I looked at it the more I liked it. It's basically ideas for re-purposing old picture frames. Which is a great idea. Who doesn't have some old frames laying around? And I am always going to yard sales, antique shops, and flea markets that have a ton of old frames for sale real cheap!

The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because there is really only 3 things in here that I would personally make. I like the other ideas, but I don't think I would never make them.

Here are the ones I really love -


How cool is this one. Not only re-purposing a frame but a few old rulers as well!


And this one is my favorite. I really love this one and plan on making this with my girlfriend over the summer!




Great pictures, easy step-by-step instructions (with pictures), and lists of the supplies you need! Its all there. What a great book for the summer!
