Traveling Pictures Framed



I hope you all had wonderful weekends.  I also hope that those of you who received snow and had power outtages are safe, sound, and warm.

The picture above is of some basic black frames I found for the travel pictures I shared with you all last week. 
 
I have nothing against black frames (I own several!), but I want to spice up the entryway and give it a burst of color.  So I decided to paint the frames yellow.  I wasn't completely sure what shade of yellow I wanted to use, but when I went to the arts and crafts store, I found a yellow that intrigued me.  Yes, I was intrigued by a can of yellow spray paint.  Actually, it's called 'Bauhaus Gold.'
 


Bauhaus Gold turned out to be everything I'd dreamed it would be.  After I sprayed on the first coat of paint, I was satisfied. Not only was I satisfied with the color, but I was satisfied with the look.  One coat of paint left the frames looking a little aged--which I like.  The pictures are of places that are ancient, aged, and worn, and in my opinion that's what makes them even more beautiful.  So I didn't want the frames to look brand new.

Here's a close-up of one of the frames to give you a better idea of the outcome:

 
I'm happy with them and can't wait to hang them up! What do you think?
