Around the House Saturdays

I'm starting this new weekly post that I'm titling, "Around the House Saturdays."

What are these posts going to be about, you ask?

Well, I thought it would be fun to post home decor ideas on a weekly basis to help inspire those in blog world who need some help finding easy and affordable ways to decorate their homes. And since Saturdays are usually days when many people are cleaning, reorganizing, etc, I thought it would be the perfect day to post these ideas. So every Saturday, I will post an idea from my home or from the homes of others in blog world that can be used to inspire you to add those little touches to your homes. Enjoy!

Empty Picture Frames
I'm a sucker for empty picture frames. And while scavenging at garage sales, I've come across many a picture frame for under 25 cents. One fun thing to do with empty, discarded picture frames is to paint them all one color and hang them up on a boldly colored wall. It creates a type of abstract installation that adds character to bare walls.

You can also place them on shelves to add texture and shape.
