It's Rednesday and I've been spray painting!


As you well know by now my favorite color is RED! This week for Rednesday I am sharing a picture frame I transformed from gold to red for our family picture.

My sister gave be this picture. I love Hydrangeas but this style of picture and the gold color of the frame does not go with our home. (I had my sister's permission to paint the frame.)


*Notice* Jilian "helping" me take the picture! :-)

Colonial Red spray paint by American Accents is pretty much my favorite color red and it can be found in LOTS of places in our house! At this point family and friends tease me that I have a "spray painting" problem!


I really liked how the original print was on a torn piece of paper.


So I bought a large piece of poster board. I tore the edges until I had the size I wanted. I then mounted our 11x14 family picture on the poster board and looked at it for awhile. Sometimes was missing. SO, I was brave and took my white scrapbook paint by Making Memories, watered it down a little and carefully (and nervously!) painted the edges of the photo. The edges were too clean before. After the paint was dry I mounted the poster board/photo onto the original mat and returned it to the frame.

Here it is, sitting on our mantle in our family room.

That is very cute. I too have a spray paint problem. I'm starting to get strange looks at Walmart from the cashiers :).

That's a pretty beautiful frame. And the red color is what I like too it's not too reddish but looks subtle red. Happy Wednesday!
