Frame It

Have a bunch of mismatched frames? Give them a makeover so they look ilke they belong in the same tailored collection. We spray painted them a rich black that pops against the pink wall. It's a cool alternative to hanging a mirror or piece of art over a console.
Arranging 101
-Arrange frames on the floor before hanging them.
-Keep the spacing on the wall equal with no more than two inches between each frame.
-Use a measuring tape to make sure the distance is accurate.
-Make cardboard cutouts the same size as your frames and tape cardboard to the wall to see how they look before you commit to the real thing.

  1. I've been collecting frames for a project like this, except that I'm going white with them. Can't wait til I have enough!

  2. Thank you Ruby Girl for your comment! Actually I prefer the white frames as well :)

  3. Love the style of the frames

    1. I think it is combination of contrast between the vivid pink wall color and the strong black frames makes it so perfect.
