Today I bring you a really easy DIY, you know, the ones I really love because you have them done in less than one hour, really!!
I was shopping at the dollar store and I bumped into this kind of silver plastic picture frame. I liked the shape but I didn’t like it looked cheap, so I was convinced I could solve that, especially when it was so cheap. You’ll find some affiliate links for your convenience, but you know I only recommend what I use and love.
As soon as I reached home I removed the back and the glass, took a brush and one of my favorite colors, Primitive from DecoArt. I raised the picture with two pots so this way it would be easier and less messy to paint it.
I only needed one coat and I let it dry. I decided not to distress or age it, I really liked how it looked this way.
When it dried I used some varnish to protect it and it was done. I used the Ultra Matte Varnish from DecoArt as well, my favorite as it is really matte and I didn’t want any shine on this picture frame.
So what do you think? Doesn’t it look fantastic? Now it seems it is a real wooden frame but it cost me almost nothing! I’m a huge fan of the power of paint 🙂
Do you like updating things in your home too? I would love to know which is your favorite one.
