I was over at Heather's and saw she had spray painted a frame on a painting she found at a thrift shop. It looked fantastic so I though "Dang. I should do that with a couple of mine". Now I love these two paintings I bought at a thrift store a few years back. They were priced at 30.00 each but I knew 1/2 off day was coming up so I stashed them behind a big mirror and when Joey went back they were still there so he paid 30.00 for both of them. Score.
I love the vibrant colors of the paint but the frames were so bland.
I took them out of the frames and, using Rust Oleum's Lime Gloss spray paint (Home Depot), I painted both of them.
Here's the result. Pretty bold, right? I put the couch back against that wall so it made a little more sense but I'm not sure if I like the green paint on those frames. I like it better than the brown frames but I'm wondering if another color would be better? I'm planning on painting the wall yellow and I'd love to put a white slip-cover on the couch but I'm not sure if those would help this situation look right.
I hope you're having a great weekend so far. I'm making throw pillows and feeling very crafty about the whole thing. Yay for making!
