{DIY} picture frame revamp.

Before we moved, I had found this large picture at Goodwill for $7 that I couldn't leave without.  I loved the picture itself, but I thought the frame was very drab and boring.  I knew I had some blue/green paint at the house for another project and decided to give it a go with a color change. 

I knew the color wouldn't be an exact match or probably look the best, but I'm not really one that likes things to match perfectly, and this actually turned out better than I had hoped.  I think the new color really makes the picture pop and it fits perfectly on the big, bare spot I had on my wall.

It was so easy to do.  All I did was buy a few cans of white primer, sprayed them on to dry, and then painted on a few coats of paint.  It definitely doesn't look professionally done because I had to do this in my garage on a box, in dim light, but it looks good to me.

I wish I had time to do projects everyday, but sadly, I don't.  This was so much fun and totally easy.

I love bargain shopping and so awesome you found this piece. The new frame color looks wonderful...the perfect touch. Also...can I just admit that as I scrolled to the bottom of your page...I spent a good long minute watching the little fishies follow my mouse. It was quite amusing. =)
