Wall Worthy

It's been a while since I posted about a project and that is mostly due to the fact that it has been a while since I actually completed one! That's not to say that I don't have a few laying around the house (I actually have a small quilt taking up my dining room table as I type that I should really be working on... but between me, you, and this monitor, I sort of hit a snafu and am waiting for it to magically work itself out).

Here is a small project that I actually started and completed during one nap time. It involves one super sonically ugly frame with some pictures I took back when I thought I was going to be the next star photographer for National Geographic (orrrr something).

The frame came off the wall long ago and has since been kicked around from closet to closet. There were a few cuts and bruises, but with a little TLC, I knew one day, it would be worth displaying again.

"Brought back to life with what exactly, because it's looking like pretty banged up?"

With what else!? Spray paint!! Sigh... I thought there would be an instant attraction between myself and the indoor/outdoor spray paint. However anything that advertises itself to be "Exceptionally Smooth" should also come with a disclaimer to "proceed with caution"! First of all it is messy!

It has a tendency to drip like the nose on a teething toddler.

And, like George Clooney, attracts any and everything that happens to fly by.

Disaster!! Luckily for me and Martha Stewart, there are TWO SIDES to every story.

With the a twist of the rist, I went from novice spray painter to semi-expert and was ready to commence on the spray paintage.

I let the frame dry, reassembled, added in a few new pieces of art and wallah!! My once beat up picture frame is once again wall worthy!

Happy Wednesday!
