On a Roll with Spray Paint!

Hey!  How have you been?  Hope all is well - the weather has been mostly beautiful lately and yesterday was no exception!  Now, Saturday was another story, but it didn't keep me from spray painting another project.

I bought these bird prints last April while on a girls-weekend trip to Blue Ridge, GA. Got 'em for $3 each!  But it took me months to find two frames.  Not because there are not frames out there, but mostly because I kind of forgot about them and wasn't looking.  Once we finished the buffet it reminded me that I had these pictures that needed framing.

I looked diligently around the flea markets and thrift stores but could not find two that matched that I liked.  So I got these from Walmart - they were $20 each.  The red sticker says "ready for display OR add your own photo"  garsh! I could have gone with the Golden Gate Bridge, huh..?

 Then, of course, I took them apart and painted them gold.  I used this spray paint from Valspar.  It is WONDERFUL.  I sprayed another smaller wooden frame last week just to see what it looked like - Love!!!

I had to spray them in the garage because it poured down all day..  but that's okay, I sprayed away

After they dried I took the picture, lined it up on the mat where I wanted it, taped it to the back, and popped them in the frames.  I love them!!!

Look at the finish ...  it is sooo pretty!

I'm so happy with the way they turned out.  Now I just need to paint the room!  It's gonna look totally different once that's done..

And here's a look back at what this little corner looked like a couple of months ago... I moved the old cedar chest into Rachael's room when we finished the buffet..

and now it's this..

 I am loving the gold I tell ya - how about you?  Is gold calling your name yet?

Linking to That DIY Party!!!
