Makeover Monday

Makeover Monday: Drab to Fab Frame!

Hello, my pretty little readers!

Welcome to a new segment that I am calling Makeover Mondays!

On Makeover Mondays, I will be posting pictures of an item that I have transformed in some way, along with some information about how I did it.

The point is to inspire you to makeover your own items. Happy makeovering! (I know that’s not a word, but it’s all I could think of.)

The Original:

I picked up this rough, dull little frame at a yard sale for 25 cents.

For a quarter, I was willing to take a chance on it. After all, a little paint can sometimes go a long way…

I painted it with a paint sample that I got when I was trying to decide which color to paint my room. It’s not the exact shade that I ended up going with, but it’s similar enough that it will go well in my room.

There were some glimpses of the solid-aqua frame in my post last Thursday.

(Look familiar?)

Next, I blocked off parts of it with masking tape, like so:

I painted over some of the aqua areas with gold, which is one of the accent colors in my room.

Finally, I added a little pink paper flower to cover up the huge scratch/dent in the corner.

Final Product:

(I have a soft spot for Pusheen, as you can see.)

There’s the frame all set up in my room! Hard to believe it was once so plain, isn’t it?

Let me know your thoughts and, as always, connect and share on social media!

See you Thursday for another pretty little post!
