Except for a very few items, I don’t really like keeping things out on our bathroom counter.

I like to have a plant or flowers, lotion, and a candle and this is what it used to look like:

Loose Items on Bathroom Counter

This little corner didn’t look super badly but it wasn’t pulled together.  So one day I looked around my house to find a tray or something that I could use as a tray to place these three things on and the only thing I could find was a 5×7 picture frame.

So this is what I did ~

I took the glass out of the picture frame and painted one side of it with acrylic craft paint.  Use any color that matches your color scheme.  I originally wanted metallic gold but I tried three different times and couldn’t get the glass painted without it being streaky.  So I settled with a gold that isn’t metallic and I actually really like it.  I’ll probably try metallic paint again sometime, though.

Then I put the glass back in the frame with the painted side inside the frame.  I super love how glass looks with the underside painted.

You could also paint the frame to get the look you want for your space.

The paint easily peels off if you paint it and decide you don’t like the color.  Or if you decide you want to use the frame again for pictures, just take the paint off and it’s ready for a picture.

It’s all finished.  That’s all there is to it.

I placed my few items on it and nestled it back in it’s little corner.  Now it’s all pulled together and it gives this area a finished look.

    I can’t stand multiple objects milling around my surfaces but sometimes it is unavoidable. This is such a clever idea!

    Great idea. I never would have thought about using a picture frame but I like it. Thank you for sharing at Merry Monday!

    I can’t believe what a huge difference the frame makes! I have a frame that has been sitting around the house that would be perfect for this. You could even drill a few holes and put handles on the sides. Great idea. Thanks for sharing.
