I bought these adorable little frames at Home Goods when my son was born. They were less than $10/each and added a little cheer to his nursery.
Fast forward a few years and add a toddler room makeover and I was left with two unusable pieces of wall art…or so I thought. I couldn’t even get any takers for them at my yard sale.
So they were in my pile of assorted things to take to Goodwill when I had a thought…spray paint? How could that have taken so long to enter my mind?
I took the Winnie frames apart and realized this was SO going to work. I wanted to use the double mats, but paint the inner mat a darker color…baby blue doesn’t really have a place in my house these days.
Unfortunately, the double mats were stuck together with double-side tape so the inner mat was a loss. Oh well, I still had a completely neutral and usable white mat for each frame to work with.
Once completely disassembled, I gave the frames a few coats of black satin spray paint.
Printed out some of my own photos from a summer stroll with my parents around my bday…
Popped them into the “new” black frames and I had some fab Art on the Cheap!
Here' they are in their new home, our downstairs hallway. It’s been bare since we moved here years ago. :(
So what do you think?
