I bought these pictures roughly 11 years ago. While I still like the actual pictures themselves, they don't go with the style I'm trying to decorate our house with. I decided to experiment a bit to see if I could give them a more rustic charm.
It's not the best before picture. Sun was shining through the blinds, but you get the idea. They were black frames.
I put two coats of white paint on, not worrying too much about brush strokes or uneven areas as the next step is distressing the paint.
I used a medium grit sand paper and scuffed up the edges of the frame and some of the flat areas.
Now I really have to get the walls painted so they don't blend in so much!
I will eventually find them a new wall to live on because I have another plan for where they are currently. But for now, I'm happy with the switch from modern to rustic.
