I've actually had this project done for a little while now, but I am just now getting around to posting it.
I follow a few design blogs and I am always quite inspired by all the DIY projects. Instead of just buying expensive pieces to decorate our home, I really wanted to start finding cheap pieces and fancy-ing them up. So here is my very first DIY!
For this project I followed the instructions found here.
I started with two frames I found at a discount warehouse store.
First I did one coat of primer, followed by two coats of spray paint. I let the frames dry completely in between each coat.
After the last coat was dry, I glazed the frames to add a special touch.
And ta-da! I ended up with two fantastic frames for my prints.
I found these awesome prints here.
What do you think??
I had such a fun time doing this project and it really made me feel good about my creative abilities and I appreciate these frames more than plain old store bought ones. I have never really thought of myself as an artsy person, but completing this project has really inspired me to do more DIY projects. I already have my next three planned!
