Updating Frames

I’ve had these pictures for a long time.  I do still like the fruit prints, although I’m not into them at the moment.  I’ll hold onto them though because I’m sure they will come back out at some time.  The frames were gold and really needed to be updated.  {I’m sorry, I forgot to take a picture of them before taking it apart}.

I had purchased these bunny prints {from either art.com or allposters.com} a few months ago and decided to use them to replace the fruit prints in the frames.  Being a bunny nut, I just love them!

I painted the frames in Heirloom White and had to cut the prints down a little bit to fit.  I also had to remove the picture hanger and use it on one of the other sides because the bunny pictures hang horizontally.  TIP:  Use needlenose pliers to hold those little nails that go into the sawtooth picture hangers.

I’ve hung them over the dresser in the foyer and removed my PB keys that were hanging there.  TIP:  This Erase A Hole stuff works great and saves me from having to deal with spackle.  It’s great for filling in holes made from pictures or window treatment hardware.

I wound up using some dark wax on top of the Heirloom White to age it a bit.  I like how the putty color in the prints goes with the putty color of the lamp.

I like the lighter feel of these prints over the keys.  This little chest is coming in handy already.  I started using the baskets and so far I’ve put my cloth napkins in No. 1, my napkin holders in No. 2 and No. 3 is holding my table runners.

The drawer is holding some chargers that I had no room for anywhere else.

Erase a hole?! Cool. Never heard of it, but it looks like spackle in deodorant type container. Great idea.

Love the bunnies. The Heirloom White is one of my old favorite colors, too. The frames look pretty in that color.

Very fun post Kathy. Something so simple as changing out frames but it works so well! I love this little area of your home and seeing how you are organizing. I believe I have the same red toile napkins. ;)

The "new" frames looks great, Kathy !! Love the Heirloom White ... and, you found a wonderful spot for them. Beautiful vignette, too.

Your frames turned out great!
Did not know about erase a hole, and may I ask what wax did you use to antique your frames?
I bought Minwax dark wax the other day and it is so clumpy and hard to work with.
I need guidance!!!
