Revamped frame.
About a month ago, I was given a very pitiful and broken large gold picture frame that was about to get thrown away. This came in great timing since I was on the lookout for larger picture frames, but wasn't having very much luck, because either I couldn't find them or they were too expensive.

I could see this sad frame had a lot of potential, so I took it home, nailed it back together, and slapped on a few coats of my favorite metallic silver paint. I had several ideas about what should go in this frame, I thought about doing a mirror to hang over my dresser, but never got around to purchasing a mirror that fit, and even thought about hanging my flat screen inside the frame, which is still an option for later on down the road. I eventually got antsy and painted a very small canvas with flowers and it floated inside the frame for a while. But today I got a little tired of the tiny canvas and the large frame idea, so I decided to take an old piece of junk art that I purchased from the Salvation Army and wrap it with the paintable wallpaper that I used on my dresser project. After I wrapped the wallpaper, I painted some of the small raised design accents with the metallic silver paint. Since I already had all of my materials, it only took me about one and a half hours to complete.

I'm still not sure if this is the final product as far as the frame goes, but I definitely like the results for now and will probably keep this one around for a while. Enjoy!
