before and after: gold painted frames

So, as you can probably tell, I am on a gold kick.  Even better if a project involves gold spray paint.  I have a gallery wall of sorts in my living room and wanted to add a few more pieces to it.  But, all three of the pieces had black frames that didn't go with the rest of the pieces on the wall. 

The finished product with the art back in the frames.  All art was purchased on Etsy.
 So I popped the pictures and glass out of the frames, brought them outside and applied a few even layers of gold spray paint to the front and sides of each of the wooden frames.  I really like how they turned out, and they look great on the wall.

If you have a frame you'd like to make gold, but cant remove the picture or glass, Jenny put up a great tutorial on using a gold leaf pen to transform your frame.  She has some impressive DIYs and a great sense of style.
