DIY Campaign-Style Frames

28 Mar

If you haven’t noticed, I dig inexpensive wall art (see free Prade Marfa printables here and $2 Marbled artwork here). While I would love to collect a few museum-worthy pieces, my financial priorities just don’t lie in art right now.

Ikea is my go-to for frames, but I’ve been wanting to “hack” my dining room frames lately. I opted to avoid the trendy campaign-style makeover for my nightstands, but still have a secret love affair with brass corner brackets.

In the spirit of inexpensive art, I give you upcycled campaign-style frames.

Want to copy the look? I went to Lowes and purchased brass corner braces ($2 for 4), picked up some very short brass screws (no more than 1/2 inch is crucial), and simply screwed them into the corners of my RIBBA frames.

Voila!

The details make the design.

Thanks for Reading,
