Salvage frames & vintage beach beauties

Welcome to my latest obsession..... I've been collecting frames made from architectural salvage.....
Paired with cute vintage "beach-beauties" themed prints.....
So cute, right? "So what's the problem?" you must be wondering.....
Well, I have colected 21 of them over the last two weeks alone.....
Obsessed? Maybe. But these little babies look so cute when they're hung. I wanted to put them in the kitchen. Then I started scattering them around the house. In the dining room they looked perfect. In the living room, bathrooms, entry by the tree hall....I can tell this is going to be an addiction I just may need some support in managing. I guess I'll just have to take things one day at a time, LOL. I haven't shopped around for architectural salvage anything for a FULL WEEK now....so Iguess it's 7 days and counting. I can do this.

Right?

If this is an obsession, I hope you don't go to a 12 step program...'cause I'm loving the pics and the frames...very cool! Are you finding salvaged wood and cutting the frames from that? Love to see some pics of the steps you follow to make the frames...love the weathered look. And those bathing suits...too cute! :-) Susan

DH and I have two frames made from old barn wood. We purchased ours at a craft fair with interesting painted pictures of old outhouses. The artist painted our last name over the doors of the outhouses while we waited. We love our bathroom art. I really like the vintage pictures you have showcased in yours.
