I'm enjoying working on decorating another room. I've put off my girls' room for a while, mainly because they can't agree on the direction. They have, miraculously, agreed on a color. Hallelujah! They're going for grey and yellow. I like it! Hopefully they stay with it long enough for me to finish their room. But they're tween/teen girls after all, and we know what that means.
Today is a quick and easy tip on how to transform all those old picture frames you may have around the house. I bought this old picture frame from a yard sale for just 25 cents. Can't go wrong with that. I wasn't crazy about the color, but I though it would be a good addition to the girls' room- once it was painted. I look for frames that have a thick and intricate border. This "chunky" frame was perfect.
First- we prime. I use a spray primer just because it's super fast. I like super fast!
Next- use your favorite spray paint color. I used heirloom white from Rust Oleum to match some of their other furniture.
Third- cut any piece of material down to size that will fit around the cardboard backing. I had this yellow material that wasn't getting any use- until now.
You can glue it onto the cardboard, modpodge, staple, hot glue, whatever you like. I just tucked mine into the frame and it stayed in place just fine.
Now we have a super easy way to achieve artistic flair to a plain old picture frame. LOVE!
The gold frame was pretty, but the white modernizes it making it perfect for my girls' room. They love it too!
