Hi friends! I just had to pop in today and share this quick and easy DIY.
So, I was in Target buying Qtips and of course I get lulled into the home decor section because why not?? Unfortunately, for my wallet Target was getting in Christmas items and had their fall decor on clearance for 50% off. (I really need to use Amazon or Jet subscriptions for household items. It would save me hundreds of dollars by avoiding Target!!) I found these fun graphic art prints for only $12.00, but the frames were kind of blah.
I thought they would look great above my television in my bedroom and the colors would work great! When I got them home, I realized I had some gold Rub ‘N Buff from this project left over. I thought it would be fun to tape off the corners and make a statement in gold.
So, I marked off my corners with painters tape. I used 2 3/4 inches all around as my measurement. I made a pencil mark where the tape would need to end. Finally, I rubbed a bit or Rub ‘N Buff on, waited a few minutes and buffed it out with a rag so it was all shiny! If you have never used Rub ‘N Buff before I highly recommend it. It is so easy to use and instantly adds a brass touch to whatever you are working on. It also comes in a variety of finishes.
Here is the frame before. Nice, but nothing special.
Here is the after. I think it adds contrast and interest. I think this would look really nice on black frames as well.
So, if you have a few extra minutes this weekend, why not waken up some boring old frames. It is an easy way to freshen up you existing decor for next to nothing!
Have a wonderful weekend! I am going to work on getting my Christmas decor out-eek! The life of a design blogger . . .
