It all started with a coupon I received in my email for a free poster sized print. I decided to use the coupon for a wedding picture. I had a hard time picking one, but that's just because they were all so good! haha ok moving along! Once I picked up the poster print I was anxious to get a frame. So when my mother called me reminding me that I needed to renew my Sam's club membership, I got Joel and we went and renewed. We were also ridiculously close to Michael's, so we stopped in and took a look at all they had to offer. After much deliberation we decided on some frames. We got two because they were bogo. One is ours and the other will be given to a very special lady in our life ;] Anyways, I got so excited that I didn't take a before picture so a stock image will have to do!
This is the finished product, I am in love!! I am debating about glazing it to make the details pop. But am a little hesitant since I've never used glaze before. I am thrilled with the difference that a couple coats of paint did! I am adoring this pop of teal.
Here is a close up of the details on the frame!
I also scored some awesome candle-holders thrifting a few weeks ago. At first I was thinking of putting them in the living room, because they would pull the navy tones in our rug out. I decided to change and prep them for our move.
After waiting for the spray-paint to dry, the real fun could begin!!
Since I got the poster print and the frame for free, the cost of my first transformation was $2.49 for paint. My second transformation was a little more, I paid $3.00 for the smaller candle-holder, and $5.00 for the larger one, I also paid $2.49 for the purple paint. The beginning pieces of our new home....maybe moving won't be so bad! Is there anything drab that you want to turn into a pop of color? Feel free to share!
