I recently needed some wall art... I had plenty of pieces to choose from...but, all the frames were dated or the wrong color. With very little time to shop and no interest in spending money if I didn't have to...
I made the best of the situation, using paint to transform what I HAD into what I NEEDED.
The only prep work I did was dusting the frames. No sanding, no primer, no taping. I painted the frames, scraped excess paint off glass with a razor blade and hung the artwork about 2 hours later.
Two water colors that my husband's parents bought in 1939.
The frames were a very dated gold.
I used two colors of acrylic artist paint.
First I applied the black and then I randomly applied the bronze...applying with the same brush without even waiting for the black to dry.
The painted frames were easily and instantly updated to match existing light fixtures.
This picture was perfect for the wall behind the toilet....colors matched other accessories in the room perfectly. However, the frame was gold, dated, and lacked impact.
I used an interior latex paint I had leftover from another project...I only applied one coat.
Updating frames is EASY! Don't overthink it.
Spray or brush, dab or wipe...be creative and have fun!
