DIY: Frame Quote Project

DIY: FRAME QUOTE PROJECT

Instructions:
  1. Lay any old frame on newspaper or paper
  2. Paint a first layer using acrylic paint, wait for it to dry (a few minutes)
  3.  Paint another layer ( I only had to paint two layers, you might have to do more depending on your frame) - let it dry
  4. Find a quote you like and print it off, cut to size of frame
  5. Put the quote in the frame
  6. Hang on wall (I did four frames/quotes and hung them on my bedroom wall



A while back I redid my room, and had come up with the idea of putting some quotes up on one wall.  Coincidentally I found some old frames lying around, but didn't like the colour since it didn't really go with my room.  With the help of Harnoor we gave the frames a little makeover and painted them with white arcrlic paint Harnoor had lying around.  It was a quick, fun, and easy project! It took me longer to decided which quotes to put up than to do the project itself.

  1. What a nice idea. I love old fancy frames. I remember when I was little I used to go hunting for old frames at garage sales with my mom. What a great memory!
