decorating with a can of paint

a couple of months ago i was cleaning out a cabinet and ran across a number of frames that were all different colors. they were relatively the same size but a different design. i was wanting to put up the kids pictures and didn't want to spend any money on the project. i ventured out into the garage, there is a wealth of supplies in there, a decorator's paradise. you should try it! i found a can of black spray paint and here is the end result. a few yards of ribbon and some fun decorator nails that i picked up when my favorite store closed, read about that tragedy here http://thedomesticchick.blogspot.com/2008/12/my-favorite-shop.html, the project was complete.

notice that the frames are not the same size or design but the color creates unity. try it in your own home. it is a great way to save and to reuse and to make your husband happy. no money spent except for the paint that was used. did i mention that the paint that was used for the frames was intended for use on a car project. oops :O)

do you have some old frames lying around for a project like this?

ps...you don't have to have pictures to fill the frames. make a collage on the wall with empty frames that are all the same color. gorgeous. trust me!

Gorgeous as always. So what room are they in? By the way, go to my blog to see what I made today.

You are inspiring me to spray paint those kid chairs we talked about last time. I found some black spray paint in a cabinet as well...

You're so talented! I need 1/4 the decorating skill you have. Is it for rent? :)
