I fell in love with the ornate details of this frame, and for only $8 I decided to look past the gold paint that wouldn't match anything in my house, and I bought it. Now, 2 months later, I realized that I should probably break out the spray paint
and help this frame reach its full potential!
I spray painted the entire frame yellow, then painted the larger details with a thin layer of white. Next I sanded a few areas to allow some specks of gold to shine through.
Here's a close up of the details
I just love it!

I love yellow accents. It is amazing how a little paint can transform an old outdated piece into a beautiful modern one. Great job!ReplyDelete
I love your yellow frame! I just painted 11 old frames yellow to use at an event. They turned out great, but I was looking for a very ornate frame like yours. Never found one but will be on the lookout now.ReplyDelete
