Frame Makeovers

I’ll start off by saying sorry.  I did not take any before pictures of these frames.  They are wood and were oak.  Pretty plain.  I had used them to hold some decorative pictures at my old job and they have just been sitting around waiting to be noticed.  I won a print from Curly Willow, not too long ago, and I wanted to use one frame for that because it was the perfect size at 11 x 14. 


I gave it a quick spray of Heirloom White {and by quick I mean it was at the end of the can}.   I kept the mat that came with the frame and just put it behind the print.  It may come in handy at some point in the future and this is a convenient way to store it. 


This print will be going in this room I am giving you a sneak peek at.  My hubby painted this room while I was in New York visiting and it will be getting a mini-transformation.  Once I get everything back where it belongs, that post will be coming shortly.

I used the second frame for something for my daughter.  I had seen the print above at Tatertots and Jello {probably around Mother’s Day} and saved it for future use.  I painted the second frame with Rustoleum Black Satin spray paint.  Since I printed this one out myself I used the mat, as it is an 8 x 10 print.


I took about 15 pictures just to get a couple to post that had no glare.


Two frames that were doing nothing are now put to good use! 

My current giveaway is from PrintRunner for 250 business cards! Ends June 11, 2012.

I love these prints and that's great using those frames.

I like them both. I'm constantly buying up frames at garage sales and the reStore, but I have been lame about redoing them lately.

A great reuse of the frames, Kathy! And being the "word" person that I am, I love that they were both used to display such fun quotes. ;)

Thanks for your recent visit. I would love to have you link up to Time Travel Thursday this week. And be sure to stop in on Thursday for my latest giveaway.
