It's Spring Break here and since we have no plans to go anywhere this week, it's a great time to get some things done around the house. On Saturday, I did all those little organizational things that have been on my list forever. I found my desk under the mounds of paper, and emptied boxes that have been sitting for over a year.
There are a few other MAJOR things on that list that I'd like to accomplish this week. One of them is getting all of our pictures hung on the wall down the hallway. I love that "gallery" look with all the family pictures on one wall. We have FOUR kids, and I take a million pictures, so I'd like to fill a couple of walls with them.
I like the uniform look of the black frames, but the frames I had were a variety of colors. So I dug around in the garage until I found some black spray paint (because the Scout Master has EVERYTHING in that garage!) and I transformed my assorted, random pile of picture frames into classy, black, gallery quality frames. And it took all of 10 minutes!
I used this black stove and grill paint because I really like the matte finish...and because it was available. :)
I still have so much to do before this project is finished. I have to choose from all the millions of amazing pictures we've taken over the years. I have to decide whether I'm going black and white with the pictures or color. And I might have to actually purchase a few more black frames. I also need to convince my friend, Laura, to make me one of those vinyl stickers that has a cute "FAMILY" quote on it.
But, at least I'm making progress. And at least today's adventure didn't cost me any money (that's always a good thing.) And if I could find something else to spray paint, I totally would do it because it's such a satisfying thing to make something look brand new and sparkly in less than 10 minutes! I LOVE spray paint!!
