Z Gallerie Picture Frame Hack
I have never actually been in to a Z Gallerie store... probably because I already know, just by looking at the window displays, that I can't afford anything in it. I was on their website though and I came across these picture frames.
I liked them but obviously I'm not going to spend $40 on one stupid picture frame. I also was a little put off by their color, I'm not going to a wedding, I just want something cute to put some pictures of my kid in. Obviously you can make these look as similar or as different from the original as you would like. Anyway, I went to the dollar store and picked up two silver 5”x7” picture frames, three bags of colorful rocks and a tube of super glue... freaking genius. I started with the fronts of each frame by running a line of glue on each side (don't glue each rock individually, trust me it's a real time waster as in the finished product won't look any better than if you just smeared that shit on) and then sticking the rocks on the the glue flat side down.
I waited a few hours for the glue to dry before I attempted the sides gluing in the same fashion only this time laying the frame on its back to dry.
The frames I bought came with a paper frame on the inside which I used as a stencil for some cute scrapbook paper.
Finished product looks adorable. The hubby even commented on these and he never comments on anything.
