spray painting frames…

today there was a huge blizzard, so i finally got around to spray painting the first coat of a few frames:

i don’t have a before shot of this frame, but it was a brown and gold ornate frame i picked up at Home Goods for about $16.00. it is 16 x 20 and i will use it to frame my new Made By Girl Love print. i cannot wait to get it up. as soon as i finish the second coat and top coat i will post some pics.

this frame was black and is 11 x 17. it is from target. i had a hard time finding a simple white 11 x 17 frame!

i have 2 prints i am thinking about for this frame. 1 of these 2:

these 2 frames i picked up at goodwill. the first one for $2.99, it is an 8 x 10. the second one with the picture in it was about $12.00. it is a 16 x 20.


not sure what will go in them yet….possibly this print in the 8 x 10:
