Silver Picture Frame

Painted frame

So this is off my UFO list, but it was still working at cleaning stuff up so I allowed it. Also, the only thing that it required buying was some spray paint.

Materials

I started with this little frame that my Bubba gave me. I had it in my kitchen at the old house, but the frame didn’t really match the new house. I am a huge fan of the Virginia at LiveLoveDIY who manages to transform the ugliest things into works of art using spray paint. And I’ve been wanting to try myself. This was the perfect small starter project. So I picked up her recommended silver — Rustoleum Titanium Silver — since we were making multiple trips to Home Depot anyhow.

I took out the picture and glass and wiped down with frame with an alcohol wipe to make sure the surface was clean so the paint would adhere well.

Ready to spray

I used one of the many boxes I had unpacked and dropped the frame in there and began to spray.

Letting the frame dry

I soon realized that I needed to lay the box on it’s side so I could get in there better to get the sides. This took two coats. I let it dry overnight.

Finished frame hanging

And voila! I’m quite happy with how it turned out and it’s now hanging in my kitchen.
