easy wall art update
Last week, my mom brought over these two wall art that hung in my old bedroom from my younger days. I believe they were bought at garage sale in the late 80s, which makes them at least 22 years old (but most definitely a lot older).
I really like them. Cute and vintage-y.
Anyway, we decided to switch out the frames for an updated look. At first we considered just painting them white, but upon close examination, it was clear that they were cheaply made and the glass was actually glued to the frame – which made painting very unfriendly. And also, hubby said the yellow velvet ribbon around it had to go.
We ended up replacing the frames with new ones that we found at Walmart. They were originally black, but a few coats of white spray paint later, they are now brilliantly white.
I had just been thinking about how we needed to add a little somethin' something' to the main level half bath and these are perfect. Seriously, they look great in there.
All for less than $20.
In hindsight, hubby said we could've painted them a different color (he mentioned pink) to give it more color...and I think I agree. But this is another project that he's not doing it over. Haha.
Oh, my camera is playing tricks again and I will just have to mention that the soft yellow color of the wall art in the last photo is fake. The actual color is more represented in the top photo.
