Repurposing Ugly Frames

Ace Hardware offered free paint samples once a month this summer- so we loaded up on paint for projects around the house.  Since we live in a starkly white house(not by choice-we want to paint the downstairs a soft gray) all of the cheap black frames we aquired over the years looked ridiculous.  SO with a little paint and some cat wrangling(our cat is addicted to trouble) I painted a couple frames to warm up our house.

The large gray frame was used in the “What a difference a day makes,” post and the yellow frame is in the kitchen from the “I love you because…” post.  I knock out all of our projects after Dirk goes down to sleep at night.  Our house is a constant work-in-progress but I am so happy with the results as they stand : )
