I’m a sucker for reusing old frames, and this one turned out to be a lovely addition to my understated Valentine’s decor.

The Magic of Old Picture Frames

I have a soft spot for old picture frames, and here’s why. These vintage gems, with all their chips and scratches, bring a unique charm to any space. When paired with a heart-shaped wreath, the frame isn’t just a border; it’s pure magic. It elevates the wreath, making it a standout piece, especially in larger spaces like my cozy white living room.
