Actually, that’s a lie, I haven’t been framed– I did it!
What did I do? Well I made a drab painting in my house look like it went through a Rainbow Bright Sparkle Bath. …I’ll show you what I mean…
This is a *slightly” older picture (I’ve updated the light since this was taken) but you get the gist of this flower picture, right? The picture itself isn’t awful, but the frame is so dark that it looks like an ogrish waste of wood. So I ripped the backing off the frame, pried up the staples and took out the picture and matting.
I decided that I wanted to update the frame, but I didn’t want to bust into a new can of spray paint. First I tried to finish up my yellow…but I didn’t get more than 5 sprays until it petered out on me. Then I tried to finish my light blue, but that yielded the same results.
BUT FINALLY! My light green saved the day! I was able to cover the whole frame and even have some paint to spare. Also (as per usual) I had the sudden urge to throw glitter at the wet paint. And then I decided to accent small areas of the picture itself with glitter (Yeah, that’s where the sparkle bath comes in)..
But this is what came of it…
As you can see, the space looks quite a bit happier. I mean, I will be the first to admit that this was a cheap shot and it looks like a couple sorority chicks did this while they were wasted, but I feel like every room is entitled to at least one item with that description.
Even when I closed the curtains and shut off the spotlight (like I did in this picture to the left) it is still brighter than the ogre that it once was.
