More Craftiness!

We just finished hanging a bunch of family photos in white frames down our hallway. I totally love it!

But then, the two Elizabeth Foster pieces we have suddenly looked out of place in their heavy brown frames. The problem was, I really liked the brown frames. It was a super hard decision, and some of you will probably scold me for this, but I decided to paint them!

The look is SO different.

This frame was especially pretty and it hurt me to paint it white... but I love it!

It just fits our decor so much better.

So are you all mad at me?

It's amazing how much the color of the frame affects the look of the art. The white really freshens everything up!

EEEEK!!
You are a brave lady. I love the old look but the white does match better.
Looks great!!

I have sort of an unrelated question: I love the wainscoting you have down your hallway; did you do that yourself? We are buying a new house and I really want to put some up in our dining room. I'm just wondering how difficult it is to work with.

My husband gets mad at me for painting frames and other things...I think they look great. The brown frames would have bugged me too.

Tarrah-
The chair rail was already there when we moved in, but we hired a friend to install the wainscoting. I don't think it was too tough, but it did involve measuring and power tools. The difference is pretty unbelievable, though! Good luck :)

Very cute! I can understand how hard it was to paint them but I agree they go better now. :)

I love how it makes the white in the paintings pop. I'm not brave enough to do it-- yet. But I think it would look good here. I do like white frames.

Can I asked what kind of paint you used? Did you just tape and spraypaint or did you use a brush?

I thought I was going to be mad but they turned out great. I might have to try that color.
