So, I got up to some major DIYing this weekend, how about you? I painted my fall pumpkins gold, gold leafed a ceiling medallion AND spruced up an old picture frame mat to give it some much needed colour. Because I knew it would take me another year to decide on a new piece of art that was a bit more colourful, I decided to go about it in a different way; I painted the mat.
The blase before...
The tools were as simple as craft paint, mini roller and IKEA picture frame (I experimented with an inexpensive frame just in case it didn't turn out the way I wanted).
And the process was even simpler, dip roller in paint and roll on the mat (making sure to get the inside edges so you don't see any white).
After it dried, I popped it back in to the frame and found it a new home.
Instant facelift! Love.
