Frames Can Do More Than You Think

Picture frames might be common home decorations, but they do enhance your walls. See the before and after photos below. The plain, boring wall draws away from the beautiful furnishings and staircase, but when pictures are artfully arranged on the walls, the entire space becomes connected.

Larson Juhl creates custom frames to help homeowners dress up their walls. They also have framing ideas and tips on their site, so if you’re a new homeowner or renter, you can learn fast.

One great idea is to purchase frames only and arrange them on a wall without the back. Then the empty frames are highlighting the wall’s paint or wallpaper. This is a more modern approach, but it’s convenient if you haven’t invested in paintings yet or don’t have many family pictures right now.

Those old talc canisters can be valued up to $15 each, but any water spots or rust stains can affect the appraisal. If it’s not worth it to you to sell these canisters, they can make romantic displays on your vanity.

This brass cylinder canister would bring out any wood vanity, and you can mix and match it with other empty or full perfume bottles and powders.

Many talc canisters in the past were made of metal, but during World War II’s metal shortage, the talc was stored in cardboard containers. One model in particular made of cardboard was Colgate-Palmolive-Peet Co.’s “Cashmere Bouquet.”

Milk glass was initially created in Venice in the 16th century, and it was made in several colors including white, pink, blue, yellow, black and brown. Traditionally, this glass is opaque and translucent, and it can be pressed into many different shapes.
