Updating Frames

In my quest to use up what I can in spray paint, especially what I had gotten fairly recently {I’m giving my sister the rest} I decided to paint these frames that have been sitting patiently and waiting their turn at beautification.

I decided to go with a brown – espresso to be exact – since there is a lot of neutrals and lightness going on in the new place.   These are just plain pine frames.

I removed the pictures and glass and took them outside for a quick spray.  I’m not sure what I’m putting in them yet, but I can pretty much use these in any room in the new condo, so I’m pretty open to see what I find.

I used this print that I recently purchased from Donna at The Decorated House’s etsy shop.   Donna did my banner and the graphic for my blog button.

I couldn’t decide which was the better angle, so I put both pictures in!

I thought this print would work well because it has pinks and browns in it.   I may just be putting this in my soon to be craft/creative room.

Such a sweet print! And I love them brown. Nice departure from the black and white I would normally do.

Funny... I was just looking at a bunch of my pictures and thinking that the frames needed an update. Good post! They look great.
