The outside of the frames were good; very simple, a pretty light wood. The matting is what I had a problem with. They were cream colored with brass lining... Brass is one of those fads I will never understand.
To fix these frames, I simply painted over the mats with white paint. It's a quick and easy update, but it makes a world of difference.
For this project, you will need:
White Acrylic Paint
|Outdated brass lining|
Paint in the open area. Make sure to use nice even strokes. Let dry. Add two more coats, drying in between.
Remove all of the tape, and voila! The paintings look great, I love the fresh, new look of the frames! I can't wait to hang them up!
|I love the bright white mats :)|
How do you update outdated artwork and furniture?
