Remember these fun frames that display the little’s photos in our master bedroom?!
They used to look ummmm not so cute…
busted out removed the mirrors from the frames.
Then I whipped out a can of Rustoleum Black Lacquer spray paint.
I wanted the frames to look super shiny and elegant so the “lacquer” look was perfect for this project!
When using this spray paint, you want to take extra time to make sure that the surface you are painting is SUPER clean and free of dust, dirt, etc. This paint is SUPER glossy and a tiny spec of dust or sand will show up. After a thorough cleaning, make sure that your surface is COMPLETELY dry. Following the directions on the back of the can, paint your frames (or whatever you are painting). Use thin coats allowing the paint to dry completely before applying the next coat. Eventually, your surface will be super shiny and fabulous! TAKE YOUR TIME WITH THIS PART!
Once your frames are totally dry (I let mine dry overnight just to be super safe), get some twine, scissors and a staple gun.
(Note: you can use any type of wire, very thick string, etc)
Turn your frame over and staple the twine to the back of the frame leaving an inch or so sticking out on each end.
Then take the extra twine on both ends and staple it like this, pulling in the opposite direction:
See how they look from the front?!
I used tiny clothes pins to hang the photos!
Now you have super fun open back frames to display your favorite photos!
The best part is how simple it is to switch the photos out!
