Frame it Out

Everytime I go thrifting, I check out the picture frame selection, as I have an affinity for intricate, thick frames. I have quite a collection started for a future project. As I was doing some work in my office, I started looking through the pile and decided to hang one up.

I took this gold, outdated frame-
  pried the oil painting off-
taped over the fabric and brought out my trusty oil-rubbed bronze spray paint-

Then, I hung it on the wall...around our thermostat-

Obviously not a HUGE makeover but definitely better than the boring before-

The best part is that it was less than $5 and took about 5 minutes to complete. It doesn't get any easier.

It's the little things in life! Have a great week. -S


  1. great idea, and the frame looks waaay better that color!

  2. I just stumbled across your blog. It's great to see another KC area blogger since so many great home blogs come from the south or the west where home design is considerably different. I'd love for you to stop by my blog. Cheers!
