Pretty as a picture...

I found these pretty pictures on Saturday- don't hate me, but they were .25 each. As soon as I saw them I had visions of a certain can of paint that is never far from reach.

They were pretty and shabby and actually perfectly fine without any of my help, but I wanted to jazz them up a bit.


After a bit of red paint on the frame...


What do you think? I love it. IT. I ran out of red spray paint!!! I could not finish the other one. Trust me, it's on the shopping list for this coming weekend. It's Rustoleum Colonial Red in satin finish in case you are interested- I don't think I have bought it all...yet.

Hard to believe you would allow yourself to run out of red spray paint, Kim! I don't hate you, I just wonder how you happen upon such great deals. Must have good karma. I love these finds. Right up my alley. The background almost looks like chalkboard paint! I absolutely love the frame red. You know I do!

Gotta LOVE SPRAY PAINT...
I need some good weather so I can do some "painting" myself...
The red makes the flowers "POP".

The red looks so much better. There are a few picture frames that I have been debating about whether to paint but I think you convinced me that it is a good idea!

Did you sand the frames or anything? I need to paint some that I have but I think they're going black.
