Here's a re-cap of yesterday's gold frame and horse painting.
I really needed a large frame for, well wrapping paper. I found through Pinterest this great site called Elum, you can find the link here http://www.elumdesigns.com/shop/paper-gifts/eco-friendly-gift-wrap/
The paper I fell in love with is this one down below.
I started by covering the actual painting with newspaper.
Grabbed one of these, I ended up using almost an entire can of spray paint. This frame required about 4 coats, and I gave about an hour in between each coat.
The gift wrap comes as a large sheet size 22x34, so I needed to cut it down to fit inside the frame. Here is a picture of my sophisticated tools.
My tools consisted of a ruler missing a corner, a tape measure, a very shiny pencil, I couldn't find my exacto knife so a paring knife stepped in, and then of course a pizza box to do the actual cutting on. I simply measured the inside of the frame and then turned over the gift wrap to make my measuring marks.
Next up I used a spray adhesive as well as a matte finishing spray to tone down the pink and add an extra layer of protection on the gift wrap.
And this is what I ended up with.
The adhesive came through a bit on the bottom, but I am keeping my fingers crossed that it will dry clear, but either way I still love it!!
More to come down the road, as I fully transform my girl's room from top to bottom.
