many of you already know much about my project new home and my DIY adventures as i try to make my house my home (insert phillip phillips song here) last week i showcased my DIY art wall. i am still in love with it and stare at it regularly.
TODAY i want to share with you my DIY for the frames (because many of you have been asking where i bought them) and i didn’t buy them the way they are – i made them.
PAINTED ANTIQUE FRAMES:
WHAT YOU NEED:
STEP BY STEP:
1. hunt though your junk for any frames: i found a couple ones that were scratched so i was no longer using them in my closet. SCORE. free to me. i love reusing old!
2. hit up the thrift stores: i looked for frames with interesting details and the cheapest prices. it does not matter what the frames look like (some of mine were SO ugly! i wish i took pre-painted pics!) you will be painting them all anyways. i spent less than five bucks all together.
3. buy spray paint: i usually hit up home depot because i love how it smells but you can buy paint anywhere. the color i used was antique white but you can pick any color to do this with!

thanks for the tutorial! sooo great!
I love this! Right now I have a frame wall in my living room, it's wedding themed. I think I want to do another one on the wall in our entry way. I want to paint it chevron and do frames.
Also–love the Micah print from Katygirl, I have the same one!
