My coworker gave me this amazing huge frame when she was moving out of her house. It is a huge, gold, ornate frame with a Monet oil painting in it. As pretty as the frame and painting were, they didn’t match my living room. Soooo… I decided to attempt a spray paint DIY and re-do the frame. I love it!
First I took the canvas out of the frame
Then I set off to Lowes. I bought a spray primer, bright red spray paint, and a glossy top coat. I chose red to match my little Ikea rug. I thought it would make both of the pieces pop!
Then I had to find somewhere to spray outside Thankfully my friends allowed me to use their backyard! I used a plastic dropcloth and primed it, waited about 15 minutes and then sprayed it red.
It was a windy day so I had to keep fixing it up because when I walked away the plastic kept flying onto the wet paint! Also… never spray around trees with loose things that can fall on your frame. Oh well… adds character! Then we enlisted Michael to hang up and viola! Finally we have something hanging above my couch!
