Pretty Picture Frames

In continuing my efforts to pretty up my office space, I decided a few framed photos were in order. 
Not just any old frames would do though… So I whipped up a few pretty picture frames! 🙂


I purchased two smaller frames and one large 8 X 10 frame from Wal-Mart. Just the cheap $3 ones you see on a rack in the middle of the aisle. 
I also bought some Krylon spray paint in Ballet Slipper and Blue Ocean Breeze. 


I removed the glass from the two smaller frames and sprayed them with the blue paint. First spraying the back and letting it dry overnight, then the fronts. I sprayed the larger frame with the pink color. 

Once the frames were completely dry… Meaning I was actually patient for once and let them completely dry for 24 hours…. I ruffed up the edges with a piece of fine grained sandpaper for a distressed look. 


Because the frames were a dark brown to begin with, it showed through after the sanding and ended up looking really neat! 

Each frame then got either one or two rolled fabric rosettes hot glued on. I used the same fabric I used for the rosette on my chalkboard flower pot, trying to maintain a little cohesiveness. 

Here are the two small blue frames finished and displayed on my office desk!!


Really that poor picture does not do them justice! Let’s try this one… 


Well, you get the idea… 😉 AND that’s my Sweetheart Scentsy warmer! 
Did you know in addition to my day job and blogging I also sell Scentsy?!?

The frames are a welcome pop of color in my dull little office cubicle for sure!!!

Check back on Tuesday to see what I did with the larger pink frame!! 🙂

    Very cute!! Love the colors too and I think the sandpaper roughing them up make them perfect.
