New Frame, Old Picture

There was probably about 100 other things I should have been doing today. Instead, I decided to tackle this nice little job!!

I was unpacking a box of pictures that I've accumulated over the past 8 1/2 years. The whole time we have been living here, I just haven't been motivated enough to put any pictures up. I kind of enjoyed the uncluttered feeling! After reading ALOT of blogs though I'm starting to 'not like the look' so I need to put some pictures up!!!

I almost got rid of this picture 2 years ago when we moved from Missouri to New Mexico. For some reason though, I just couldn't part with it. (I never even had it hanging up in our house in MO!)

I'm sure glad I kept this little jewel! The gold frame really doesn't go with anything I have, but the yellows, that you really can't see, do.

Alas, the light bulb went off and lit up my whole bedroom!!! I'll just use the spray paint that I bought for another project!!! (I'll show you that one as soon as I get the 'rug' peeled off of my bedroom wall!!) That's a whole-nother post right there!!!!

And here you have it finished.......

I'm honestly surprised I finished this in one afternoon!! In my past life, this project would have taken me MONTHS!!!! and today I got it done in 2 hours!!

The older 3 ran over to the neighbors for a bit so it was just me and Peanut! I made her stand at the glass door and talk to me while I spray painted. I did end up letting her out on the grass while i scraped the paint drops off the glass. (She only ate a little grass!)

I am up to no good!!

Somebody get that kid a kleenex!!

This looks very interesting!!

Aww, that's nice!!!

So, what magic can you make happen with a can of spray paint???

(It has to be legal!!!) :)

She looks so much like T. and Sean. You are becoming quite good at the spray paint. Now I just need to lure over to Uppercase Living. Did you see Heather's when you were home?
