DIY: Old Screen Art Frame

I was pondering through sale items at a local antique shop when the owner reduced the price on a pair of old window screens, she told me she had had them for a while and could come up with what to use them for, crazy have it I was looking for something to display recent photos of my 4 kiddos and that's what I initially used the screens for until they did these adorable dog paintings that I had to show off.

The screens already had hanging hooks on them so all I did was attach a bracket to the backside to hold them together and hung it on the wall. Then took 4 paperclips and put them through the screen and slide the watercolor paintings onto the paperclip, so simple and I can easily change the art out anytime.

I love all the holes in the screen and chippy paint in contrast with the bright colors in the artwork.
