The sad, plain brown frame lived for a year or two in our attic. When T got his fancy TV, we took the print down, but I wasn't willing to part with the frame. I had quite forgotten about until I found myself up there attempting to shove the 42 boxes of Christmas decorations to the back of the area.
Honestly, it wasn't really even the frame that was the problem. The print isn't awful, in and of itself. But neither T nor I are particularly interested in fox hunting, and it seemed silly to display something that we don't really care about. So why not update the frame and use it for something we do love?
Spotting the frame in the attic reminded me that I had a lovely rolled canvas photo from UPrinting that I had received after doing some work with them a few months back. I hauled the frame downstairs with me, eager for some good spray painting weather.
We had a high of 46 the other day, and I decided that I couldn't wait any longer. Armed with my favorite Krylon Dual Spray Paint (it's paint and primer!) in black, I headed outside and spray painted my little heart out. With one coat of the Dual, and 25 minutes later, my frame was dry and ready to be presented in its new look.
The power of spray paint, right?
Seeing how great the canvas print of my two pretty girlies looks in the fresh frame had me slap myself on the forehead a bit. Why didn't I do it earlier? It was a great reminder to step up and take on those little projects!
Is there a little project in your home that's waiting for some attention?
