Feeling Blue

One of the only things I found at Home Goods the last trip there were some frames on clearance {very disappointing trip}.  One of the frames I got was this little gold number ~ $5.00.  It’s very heavy and very gold.

To make it work for me I decided to dry brush some paint on it to cut down on the gold a bit.  I used this craft paint called Sky Blue {which is more of a Robin’s Egg Blue to me}.

I left some of the gold showing, but this frame now fits in with my bedroom.

I think a picture of hubby and I will be just perfect for it!

WOW!!! Never thought of painting something with blue to cut the gold (I always think black!) It looks wonderful. Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful Kathy! I never really thought of doing those things until I started blogging and now I look at everything differently. :-) Thanks so much for the great inspiration!

I love how you changed up this frame. Don't you hate when you walk out of Home Goods empty handed. I am hosting my very first linky party. This would be a great post to link up. It's under yesterday's post and the link will be open for a few more days.

It looks great! I like that you left some of the gold showing. And I know how you feel. I went to Goodwill yesterday and came back with a big fat goose egg. =(

Leslie @ goodbye, house! HELLO, HOME! said...

Pretty!
Are you using it to stage?
How is that coming, are you ready yet?
If so, you are one fast stager--I think I am lolly-gagging because I think I have a year left.
But this year, 2011, i haven't done diddly squat yet.
I'd better get moving, huh?
<3, me
