Being a photography addict pretty much all of my life, I was a pretty big fan of picture frames in the early 90's. And, being one that has a hard time saying goodbye to anything, I stumbled upon a basket full of ornate metal frames while preparing for our garage sale last weekend. Now I did myself a disservice by not taking "before" shots but close your eyes and envision these in silver metal. Yikes is right!
I am absolutely loving them in their newly upcycled form. (As is Zuzu. She has already staked claim to the one on the right. Wonder where she got her good taste? tee-hee...)
It's super easy to do. Just a foam paintbrush & 1-2 coats of a brightly colored acrylic paint. I suppose you could spray paint them too but I have yet to find colors I like in a can. If you happen have a good supplier...do share!
