Summer Rental Redesign: Frames Before/After (sort of)


I picked up these large frames from the thrift store for $1.99 a piece. I love the large size of them. I think they'll make a great statement above my couch. They were that ugly wood color that I don't like so I decided to spray paint them. (Please ignore how gross this porch is...I wish I could power wash it or something!)
 

 

I went with a metallic gold.  And I really love it.  Who knew metallic spray paint was so fun?

 

The next step is to figure out what to put in them.  Of course, I could always do some sort of fabric, but I'm up for thinking of something more interesting.  So far I've had a few ideas, some that might involve trying my hand at painting.  Have you seen any good ideas for large frames lately?  Please share if you have!

    i saw a collage of empty frames sitting on a ledge on decor8 a while ago and recreated it in my living room. easy peasy - especially if you've already found the large frame.

    here was my inspiration photo: http://justlikemarypoppins.blogspot.com/2010/11/another-idea-for-wall.html

    and my lame photo of my finished product: http://justlikemarypoppins.blogspot.com/2011/01/home-improvement-project-v245907420.html.

    since then, i've added a few of the anthro fabric letters... something to make it less generic.

    seriously so easy.
