One of my projects this weekend was to paint the frames on some pictures I got a couple of weeks ago at Oops. I got the pair of pictures for $12.00 and ALMOST bought one about a month ago for $30.00 at a decorating shop. I'm glad I didn't!
Here is the original color of the frame. Not a bad color but not my style. It was a little too silvery-gray for my house.
I wanted to put the pictures over this guest bed. It doesn't have a headboard (another project for another day) and I was tired of the picture. I got that picture for my 16th birthday, almost 10 years ago! My friends always thought it was funny I wanted a picture when I was sixteen.
I painted the frames white. I tried to distress them but I am not good at that so I painted them solid white.
I am happy how this turned out. In real life there is more of a contrast between the wall color and the white but it didn't turn out like that in the picture. I got the platter from my grandmother and it was the first dish I have ever hung. I want to hang more!! I love the look of plates on the wall that I have been seeing on some of your blogs. When I walk in the room now it looks like a lot more "cottage-y". So thanks for the inspiration!
