Tutorial Tuesday #8: More Upcycle Frames

Hey again! Today's post isn't anything very special. In fact, I shouldn't even label it a tutorial. I've been working on more wedding stuff, mainly gifts, but I can't post about them quite yet! I'm pretty sure I mentioned in my last upcycled frame post that I had a bunch of other regular photo frames to use for the wedding that I wanted to spray paint brown. Well, I finally am getting around to posting pictures of those.

Basically it started with a bunch of $0.39-$0.59 thrift store frames that looked like this

I tried really hard to pick out frames with some sort of detail around them because it just looks a lot nicer to me. I first sprayed them with gray primer. Notice how spotty it looks? Yeah, well that's because I ran out of the primer. I'm pretty sure I used up every last drop.

The last thing I did was spray them with 2 coats of Krylon "Brown Leather."  I added some of our engagement photos and I now have some more decor for the wedding!

Just 66 more days to go! Hope everyone has a wonderful rest of the week!
