Inspired Design Challenge Week 1 // Target

I am excited to share our projects from our first week of the Inspired Design Challenge!! As you know our first week is Target. I don’t know about you, but I can’t go into that place without buying something home related!

Inspired Design Challenge

For my project, I chose to base it off of the new Threshold SuperNatural Home Collection. I love everything about this collection and it is right up my alley!

I especially like the snake skin lamp base.

I wanted to bring more snake skin into my space. Now, I don’t need another lamp right now but I do need more photo frames. Since I am working on a gallery wall for the entry way, I found a way to add it to some old picture frames for only $3.99…

snake skin duct tape

Yep. You read that right. One $3.99 roll of snake skin duct tape I found where? Target, of course!

Old outdated frames + snake skin duct tape = FABULOUS

I had a friend over after I made these and she asked me where I got these awesome frames. She was shocked when I said it was duct tape. How fun is that!

I  love the way it looks on the white brick. This is perfect since I’m sticking to golds, black, and white frames for the gallery wall. It is a fun way to bring some pattern in and you gotta love the price! So, don’t throw away those old frames.

    Love this, Kristin! What a great way to cover up cheap frames that we all have, too. Also…totally off subject, but I just noticed the outline around your pics…looks great!!! It may have been like that for awhile, but I think it looks so clean! ;)

    I have spray painted frames (who hasn’t at this point) and covered them with fabric, but I never thought about using tape. What a great idea! I have two snake skin message boards in bedroom, some frames might look nice added to the area.

    These turned out great! Would never have known they were made of duct tape if you hadn’t told me.

    I’m always painting cheap frames from Michaels, but not once have I thought about duct tape! Creative, cheap, and easy – just how I like it. Thanks for the awesome inspiration! LOVE the snake skin print. I’ll be heading over to Target today to see what other prints they have :)

      Thanks so much Cristina. I love that it doesn’t look cheap and that no one knows it’s duct tape until I tell them. xo Kristin

    I have to go get some of that duct tape. Love it! My daughter is obsessed with duct tape and steals it from me all the time. Might have to get more than one roll, LOL.
    Great little project!
