Simple Painted Frame

It started with a wood frame.  I love wood, but there is just too much of it everywhere in my house.  Just because I have moved away from rustic colors doesn't mean I want to have to get rid of everything I already have.  Take a look at this frame:

Nice frame, but I really wanted to freshen it up.  Plus, little guy is now 8 so it's probably time to change out this photo!

I took the picture out and the back off and got to work.

One coat of Kilz primer and about 4 coats of Gloss White.  Make sure to leave plenty of time between each coat of paint...even if you are impatient like me.

I love the way it turned out.

I put some leftover fabric from my curtain project in the frame and it's so bright and colorful.  You can still see the old wallpaper in the background (I really want to get to that project soon, but I am having a difficult time choosing new wallpaper!).  Oh well, that's for another!

This was a simple, fun way to brighten up an old frame.  Any one else still spray painting?  I slowed down, but this may have got me going again!
