A New Look For Old Picture Frames

I’m on a spray painting kick!

After updating our cabinet handles with spray paint a few days ago, the picture frames in my bedroom started really bugging me.  I’m not a fan of gold.  I’m really, really not a fan of gold.

I love the flowers, but I have always hated the gold frames.  Unfortunately, the frames are more expensive to replace than the pictures so I have lived with it for too long.

A little paint makes a huge difference.

I loved the nickel finish on my cabinet handles so much that I decided to use the same color to update my picture frames.  I removed the picture, mat, and glass before painting.  That is a lot easier than trying to tape it up.  It also gave me a chance to clean the glass really well.  A quick coating of paint and some time drying was all it took.

My new updated frames make me so happy.

HeeHee! See what I did here?

It is kind of hard to tell with the glare from the lights, but I actually put the print into the frame upside down.  My husband who swears that he’s more visual than I am hasn’t noticed yet.  He does read my blog, though.  So….

I plan to leave it like that for a little while because it makes me laugh.  I will fix it before too long… unless my husband gets to it before I do.  Hint!  Hint!

Still Going!

You know I couldn’t stop there.  I didn’t get any before pictures.  Sorry.  I attacked some random framed pictures of family that were around my house.  One frame was brown wooden.  Another frame was burgundy and cream.  A different frame was an emerald green.  The last one was brown and black.  I decided to give them some uniformity.

A little spray paint gives mismatched frames some uniformity.

Just as I did with the other frames, I removed the pictures and glass before painting.  All the frames are still very different, but they work so much better together now.
