Seriously the best and easiest way to frame your art! And a giveaway!

CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. THANKS TO ALL WHO ENTERED!

For some reason, unless you have a bottomless bank account, framing is such a HASSLE. Hence why I still have so many prints still rolled up in tubes under my bed. Framing my art always ends up costing more than the art itself, and then if you try to buy the frame unassembled matting and backing and hanging makes you realize that maybe it's worth the money to have a professional do it!

However - I was just introduced to Change of Art - and wow am I impressed.  The frame is probably the nicest one in my home, it's eco-friendly, and made in the USA!

Here's the rundown: "Our EasyGallery® frames eliminate all the usual hassles of matting, framing and hanging. Prints slide in & out – no taping, no taking the frame apart, no fussing with the glass. And you can store a dozen (+) prints in back. Best of all, everything's changeable – in seconds!"
- Change of Art

Check out how easy it was for me to finally frame and hang a few tiny prints I had bought in Alaska back in 2012 when I ran a marathon.



Slip the art in the slot in the back of the frame.

 Put other prints for display later in the pocket behind the frame.

Use the GENIUS template and easy-peasy button and nail to plan the placement of the frame and tap in the nail.


Align the divot in the frame with the top of the button...


TADA! How amazing is that!

I felt so accomplished afterwards and barely did any work! 

Now, lucky for you guys, the awesome folks at Change of Art are offering one lucky reader a trio of Change of Art frames!

If you want to enter for a chance to win, leave a comment below (or email me) telling me what for or how you would use this genius product.  

The winner will get to choose from white, black, or brown medium-sized frames, and will be announced by random-draw on Wednesday, Feb. 6th.  

Good luck!

I have some great black and white photos I took of my son when he was about a month old and I really want to hang them already! This DOES look easy!

Claire said...

This is amazing! It'd be great for kids' artwork, although I don't have any... I'd use it in the gallery wall that I have planned for our bedroom with small artwork!

Megahn said...

I am dying for frames that allow me to easily change out school pictures of all my kids, nieces, and nephews each year. What a great concept!

Linda said...

I love this! Sometimes the simplest of ideas are the most brilliant. :)

Melanie said...

Why didn't I think of that! Thankful someone did! I would use the frames for some wedding photos. Thank you for a chance at the giveaway!

Maureen Richmond said...

I have started and stopped a photo wall montage 4 times last year. The photos and frames are currently sitting in a box in my basement. These frames would certainly make the project much easier. I could actually get it done this year!

Julie said...

I have some Etsy art and some children's art I need frames for and these would be perfect!

Liz White said...

This is genius!Having these to transform my house!

Anna Stoneburgh said...

These are genius! I'm an artist and am currently looking into have prints made of my work to sell on Etsy or in local arts fairs. These would be an amazing add-on for my clients! What an exciting option. I love them!

Kristin said...

very smart! I would use this in my guest room, it needs some more art!

Sherrie St. Hilaire said...

Super awesome idea! I have 8 grandchildren who would love to see their art displayed in a real frame!!! I have a family gallery wall that these would be perfect for!

By the way, I'm new to your blog and absolutely love it! I somehow managed to find you via Miss Mustard Seed (I think!) You know how link hopping can be!

Heather said...

I have some great b&w baby pics of my children that are begging for black frames. These look great!

Elizabeth said...

This is one of those genius ideas that I wish I had thought of. I would use this for cute seasonal artwork.

Lauren said...

I would use them for some original stretches from etsy that I have had forever.

Tammy@InStitches said...

ooooh, I need those for my gallery wall !

Jon said...

I would use these to finally display some of my photography in a beautiful way!

Emaleth said...

I would love to have these frames! I have dozens of photos of my little ones but limited wall space to display them. Having these would let me easily switch between pictures (and add in some of my son's art). I loved these frames when they were 5 second frames and I'm so excited to be able to purchase them again.

Lisa said...

I would frame some gorgeous ballet photos of dancers in mid-air. They have been waiting for a long time for frames!

Jennifer said...

I have some prints by local artists of the city park that I've been meaning to frame and hang forever - what a great idea!

Will check back in - just not into having a google+ account :).

Vidya Sudarsan said...

omg! wish all frames were like this one!

Jenny said...

I'd love to use these to frame art that I've bought and traded with other fellow artists.

BrittanyB-G said...

This is a great idea. My husband and I are buying a mountain vacation home and are in need of decor for it. These frames would be perfect for it!

Lori said...

Love this idea! I'm working on a gallery wall at the moment, perfect timing!

SS Knerr said...

I'm always adding travel pictures to my office wall...and I only use black frames. I'd love to have this brilliant frame so I can change out some of my favorite pictures!! Thanks for the opportunity to win.

AmyeToTheRescue! said...

Genius! Pictures of my grandgirls as they grow! Thank you for this opportunity.

nicole said...

Wow - this looks really neat!!!! I would LOVE to use this for some wedding photos I've been meaning to hang up... :)

Wendy said...

Those look very nice! I would probably use them in a grouping in the stairwell. Thanks for the giveaway!

lonnifay said...

What a great idea! Maybe now I can actually keep up with framing family photos!

Joy said...

This frame is awesome. I would love to have this frame to use for my weekly quotes that I currently tape to the kitchen window.

Anne said...

Great idea. These would be great for showcasing travel photos :)

Jennifer (From Detroit,MI) said...

Hi Ashley. Love Decorology and love the Change of Art frame! Great idea, great looking...why didn't I think of that? I have some small but beautiful pieces of woven cloth from Honduras that would brighten up any room. I would love to see them displayed in the three black frames! ☮

Jan said...

I would hang family photos. These really look awesome!

Anonymous said...

I have some beautiful art pieces by ... My kids!! I would love a trio of the brown.

Very Clever framing idea! I would use it to update my son's school photos each year. And I would store the previous ones in the slot in back. I would also use another one to frame my business certificate and change them out each year as they become updated. NO more fussing with mats and nails and sawtooth hangers!
Love it!

This is a great idea and thanks for offering a chance to win. I do pen and ink drawings and this would make changing them out so easy. Thanks again! Lori

Just saw your art frames..So cool. I am always switching out pictures and this is a great way to do it. If I won this giveaway, I would give them to my daughter who moved to Austin, Texas. She has slowly been decorating her apartment, on a limited budget. She can't afford much art, but she is taking a photography class at UT and I thought it would be a great way to display her photos and have art at the same time! That is what I would do with this great product. (Maybe by some for myself....)

Thanks for sharing and providing this giveaway! Bye the way, love your blog. Have got some good ideas from it.

I'd like to be entered in the drawing for frames.

These frames appear to be fantastic! As a grandparent, we get lots of photo prints of the "grands" which we like to display. But we can't afford to have them professionally framed, and the pre-sized photo frames are, well, tacky. We can also store extra photos or wallets sizes in the pockets. Brilliant!

I absolutley love these frames!!! How wonderful:) I would use these frames in my dining room and change out when the seasons change....good idea, huh? Draw my name because I would love them.

Thanks,
Brenda

I am in the middle of a renovation on Siesta Key, FL and would use these frames in the hallway off the foyer to change the art routinely. What a fantastic way to keep the excitement going for guests. It would be fun to put pictures of guests in the frames. How fun to walk in a house and see your picture displayed for a party.

Awesome idea. Thanks.

What a great idea! We have bare walls all over the house just because framing is such a production. There is one particular wall in the living room that could really use some help!

ooooh i have a set of Central Park photographs that i took in a recent snowfall that I'm dying to put up in our living room ... best art is the ones we create ourselves. Love this.

annie said...

Just bought some new artwork for my kitchen but have no frames for them. This would be perfect!

katie said...

I have five kids and only photos of the oldest three have made it on the wall! In serious need of these frames!

Cheryl said...

We just moved into a new home so definitely could use this frame to put up some art I've had stored away. Thanks for the giveaway!!

Katie Waddell said...

What a great idea! I could definitely use some of these in my boys' room!!

Dahlia's Design said...

I got married about two months ago and am in desperate need of some lovely frames to display my wedding pictures. And to hid the hideous walls of our ghetto newly-wed apartment.....

My boyfriend is a photographer with an amazing weekly production: please, help!!!!

Lisa Caldwell said...

Photography is a new hobby for the past six months and I would love to create a gallery wall to show my progress

Yasue said...

I'd use these to frame art made by various members of my family. My brother (died in 1996) was an artist, my sister, my aunt, and even me. I move to my first house in 10 years and I'll have a space for art again!

mfrazier said...

Wow, this is amazing! I bought all of the frames and mattes for my display in the living room. It was a hassle (and still is) to get them to stay right in the frames and matte without damaging the artwork. I would love to try this change of art frame to see if I want to replace all of those frames.

Momma K. said...

with three kids that love to create artwork, I can never find the surface of my refrigerator. Maybe a set of these would be a much better way to display and store each of their masterpieces.

lins said...

i love it! takes all the crazy out of framing and hanging. would use my grandparents' and parents' pics from long ago ;)

Pia LearningMontessori said...

I do not have art on my walls. This is a great way to add and change Art and photos and in a flash. love it!

Bivoncé said...

I've been using poster stickers for my art prints and photos for a long time and would love for it to be classier looking with these frames.

Joanna said...

I would finally put something on the walls in our bedroom!

Bishop Dr. Michael C. Lewis said...

we just painted the office, and have almost a dozen little art prints that desperately need frames, just like these.

Tara Wojtkunski said...

These beautiful sustainable frames are just what I am looking for! I can't believe how beautiful they are for the price. Fingers crossed we win them, since we are trying to fix up our house while I'm in grad school=not working.

emcSquared said...

This would be a wonderful way for me to display my vintage postcards from my Great Grandma! Thanks!

Les Aventures de La Mère de Petite said...

These are wonderful! I would use them to decorate with my daughters' ever changing art.

Jeannine @ Small and Chic said...

I think that frame might be the perfect size for framing our Save the Date card from our wedding. I've been meaning to frame it!

Janet M said...

Seriously one of the best giveaways ever! I am forever wanting to change out my grand kids photo's but rarely do because of the time it takes to do it. These frames are pure genius =)

the cape on the corner said...

great idea! i'd use this in our basement, as i want to do a ledge gallery wall. fingers crossed, and thanks for offering this!

Katie M said...

Love this idea! I would definitely use the frame to add to my collection of a/c wall and window unit prints, paintings, and sketches (yes, you read that correctly -- prints and paintings of AC units) to go on the wall where my ACTUAL (and ugly) a/c wall unit lives! It's an idea I've had for a while, and I'm trying to complete the project!

lisa m said...

This frame would be perfect for my kids artwork! Great!

Melody said...

OMG! If you had ever been a witness to me trying to frame or hang a picture, then you would know I truly NEED these frames. Holes the size of golfballs, shards of glasses, bruised thumbs, and bloodied fingers, well you get the idea, I'm a lost cause. This is an amazing concept!!!
Thanks,
Melody

Such a great idea! New lake home with lots of blank walls, but lots of pictures that need to be up and shared.
Thanks for sharing!

Great idea! New lake house, lots of wall space, lots of pictures, and could use this creative way of displaying years of pictures.
