My Family Picture Makeover

Here is the before...all beloved photos and a clock on top of the entertainment center in my living room. Lots of different style frames...lots of different color wood.
I have been keeping an eye out for some different cheap frames. I routinely shop at Goodwill and The Salvation Army for new decorating items. I found several frames, but what did the trick was spray painting all the frames a matte black.
And then I found this Families are Forever plaque at Hobby Lobby for 50% off, which made it a whopping $2.49.
Here is the finished product. I love it and changing things up a bit only cost around $6.50 (the plaque, $3 for the paint, and $1 for only one new frame).

Neat idea. I hope some of your creativeness wears off on me next weekend!

I painted all of our frames black a while back, I've never been happier! I love the way it looks!

I host a "Room a month makeover" every Monday (Don't worry, you don't have to complete a room, a small change!) Stop by and link up!

Came over from Kimba's--that really looks great. It shows what a transformation you can do with paint. Very cute!
