Shabby Chic Wall Paper Frame

I bought this shabby chic frame at the Hollywood Thrift store for $5.95 last month. I liked the size , the shape and I even liked the wall paper print of the frame. But the print had a water stain and my plan was to replace the wall paper to a mirror some day when I have the time to do it.

Yesterday, I spent all day fixing and painting the treasures(?) that I've been wanting to use for my living room make over. As I was going through my nick knack piles in attic, I found that plate rack standing right next to the frame which I completely forgot about.

Well, here they are now!!! After a couple of primer and a few coats of spray paint, they are proudly displayed on my living room wall.

Hi Suzie!
I checked in earlier but I've been too busy to comment. Is that your living room?? I love it! My living room is also yellow. Its such a happy color and brings in such light. I love your sofa! I'm going to buy a new one one of these days (when my kids learn that markers are for paper) Can you tell me where you got it? The frame/plates are a great transformation!
