Upcycled Picture Frames

I wanted to update some of my pictures/frames that I had around the house.  When I got the box of them, I found that water somehow got into the box and the pictures and backing were now ruined.  I had to throw the everything away except the the glass and the frame was still good.  Well, the picture was stuck to the glass so I had to clean it really good to get it all off.

So some reason I forgot to take pictures of the painting process of the frames but it was simple.  I used Black spray paint that I got for .99¢ at Lowe’s.

Make sure to spray it in a well ventilated area and put newspaper or something down to protect the flooring and sides.  I put up a wood piece against the fence and paper down on the floor.  It made it easier to get the sides and corners.  Spray as directed on can.

I had this already laying around the house but you can get them at the Dollar store.

This character was done in Santa Cruz Boardwalk in 2010.  It took this long for me to frame it.

I was at the thrift store and it was half off on red tags.  I went to the picture section and found a few pictures.  So I got some for a good deal.

I sprayed this just like the first picture frame.

As you can tell, this was an anniversary photo last year in Santa Cruz Boardwalk too.  These Photos make me laugh every time I look at them.  My other daughter’s character came in the frame already but I might change it out so it is a little bigger to go with the other two.
