Frame it up!

Hey guys – so as I promised I am back with more projects! This time it’s a small little makeover, but none the less, it’s still a project! This was so simple to do and really made such a big difference. When I made over my {laundry room} a few weeks ago, I stole a piece of artwork I had hanging in the kitchen. I now had a blank wall in my kitchen that needed to be filled. And as we all know, you can’t just leave a wall blank! Especially when you had something there already. It just looked naked and incomplete, so I had to fix it.

As you can see in the {before} picture below, I was going to use this frame in my laundry room, but when everything was finished, it just wasn’t tall enough. It was however the perfect size for a small wall in our kitchen. So I made a swap! But before I could actually hang it in it’s new home, I had to make some drastic changes. Below is a short how-to on my makeover.

{Before}
{ After }
Supply list:
1. Frame – new or old (mine happened to be a vintage frame)
2. Spray paint – I used a matte white
3. Swatch of fabric – large enough to fit the frame
4. Staple gun and staples
5. Wooden spoons – I found mine at Marshalls
6. Hanging nails (for spoons to sit on)
Below is a short step-by-step of my process:
{Step 1 – Tape off what you don’t want painted} 
This frame had a canvas border (which I LOVED) so I taped it off
{ Step 2 – Spray paint remaining frame }
{ Step 3 – Sand edges down to your preference } 
Any type of sand paper will work. I just used what I had on hand.
{ Step 4 – Cut fabric to fit the back of frame, pull tight & staple }
I already had this fabric and since the frame wasn’t very large, I was able to use leftover scraps.
{ Step 5 – Hang frame & nail in wooden spoons }
I nailed the hanging nails directly into the wall through the fabric. It seemed to work just fine!
So what do you think?? It seems to fit the space well, and was a very cheap project considering I already had all my supplies on hand. Hope you all enjoyed and had a great week!
