I pulled the old switcheroo. So much happened with gifts that were recently given that the only way to explain (as usual) is with photos.
My aunt gave me a picture in a frame that made it look too country (the painting with several flowers.) I had a before picture at one point, but I didn’t think I would ever use it so I deleted it. Oops, I guess the joke’s on me.
As you can see I popped the picture out of the frame and found a home for the painting on a shelf. The frame got a makeover too…..
My sister gave me a picture that I liked, but the frame brought out all of the darker aspects and it made it…well less appealing than I normally would.
I took the photo out of the dark frame (which I threw away) and painted the other picture frame hot pink. Next I used painter’s tape and blue spray paint to paint the frame blue with a pink stripe. I cut down the picture and plexiglass and stuck it in the frame.
I was able to take two unusable pieces and turn them into fun additions to my colorful walls.
