Ahhhh…its a beautiful sunny, crisp fall Monday here in Nashville!! The whole weekend was beautiful and I was finally able to do a little project!!! 3 months ago, I picked up an awesome honeycomb frame for $4.00 at Goodwill. I loved the shape, but knew it would need a fresh coat of paint, and a switcha-roo on the picture!!! I decided on Bright glossy yellow, and love the way it turned out!!
Here was the process!!
Take the picture apart for sanding
Sanding. I hate sanding. I have zero patience even for a tiny project like this…I feel like its very similar to going to the dentist or the gyno…it kinda sucks but its a MUST if you want to get the best possible results! ( what..you have never compared sanding to going o the gyno??)
STEP THREE: Primer. Once all was sanded, I decided to use a very light coat of primer, just to be sure the wood grain was covered.
Paint. I did 3 light coats over the course of 1.5 hours
The picture. I didn’t have a colorful picture to put in this sweet little frame, so I took a scrap piece of water color paper and painted my own, using the colors that you will find through out my home.
Cover backing with fabric swatches. I have a ton of little fabric swatches laying around, and I wanted to add a little interest o this picture!! So I glued the swatches to the backing of the frame, and cut the edges!!
AND VOILA!!!! I am really excited how it turned out!! The pop of color is just what we needed in our hallway, to pull through the colors of the living room!!
I love finding gems at goodwill!!! Have you done an inexpensive DIY lately??
Enjoy your Monday!!
