Vintage Ikea

Vintage Ikea
Maybe you’ve tried looking at your local thriftstore for an ornate vintage frame to give a sexy makeover to. Maybe your local thriftstore is like mine, mainly carrying a vast assortment of boring and/or cheap frames, usually still displaying pictures of kittens wearing hats. Not sexy. 
If that be the case, go visit my boyfriend, IKEA, and he will hook you up with this lovely frame for only $24! You can give it a distressed makeover like Christen did from La Vida Lista, along with a chalkboard for love notes! I much prefer love notes to kitty pictures, but maybe that’s just me… Thanks Christen!

    Adorable. Now if only I could get my husband to write a love note on it everyday I’d be in business.
