Clean up the Art Wall: Paint the Frames. Easy & Fast DIY for a Pro Look.

This weekend I unified the art on the “Art Wall” by simply painting the frames. A hodge-podge of thrift store frames is made to look a bit more professional by painting them all the same color. In this case I chose black, as there were already a few black frames on the wall. And I like black. Yes, you will notice a couple new frames and a new screen print. I snagged these at a garage sale this morning (screen print $5, frames $2 each).

First, I removed everything from the frames and cleaned the dust off. Then it was off to the back yard on a rare Spring-like day in February to do a little spray painting. I used 2X Cover in Black Gloss by Rustolium. I love this paint. Two coats, no priming, worked great.

When they were all dry, I replaced the art and hung them back up. Easy-peasy.

…a little cleaner, a little sharper. I like it. The Art Wall is almost full now. Just a few more cool artsy finds to go!
