More Spray Paint Fun

I have heard lots of praise on some of the other decorating blogs about the wonders of American Accents Heirloom White Smooth Satin Finish Fast Drying Spray Paint by Rust-oleum and so I finally had to go out and get me some. This was a quick project. I had a frame that was a bit too much. Too much black, too much burgundy, and way too much gold. So in a mater of minutes I changed it and I love the results.

Here is the before. Not bad....very French looking and you know how I love that but it was a bit extreme.

I layed it on a thick plastic bag and gave it 2 coats of paint allowing it to dry for about 10 to 15 minutes in between coats. And here are the results!

Very happy with the the new look. I need to find a special photo to put in it and move it around the house a bit till I find a good spot for it. Have a great weekend!!

I liked it the black/gold/burgundy BUT I LOVE it the new Heirloom white. The new color will allow the photo you place in it to take the spotlight. Before the frame would've competed for attention. Nice transformation. I need to try this paint color out on something...hmmmm, I will figure it out. Thanks for the inspiration. I hope you're having a lovely weekend.

I was looking for the Heirloom White at Michaels today and they didn't have it. I am determined to try that one myself, Lisa. The frame looks great in the white! I'm sure it will fit in nicely wherever you decide to put it.
