How to Refurbish Picture Frames

by Carlos Garcia

Bring life back to old frames with a little spray paint


  • Spray paint
  • Glue
  • Large plastic bag
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Buy your favorite color spray can - gold and green- remove the crystal and the backing from the frames, but if it it doesn't come off easily leave it on...

    Step 2

    As you can see, I could only remove the backing to 8/9 frames. Make sure to clean them well and that they are nice and dry.

    Step 3

    Add cool designs; I went for a simple stripes-------- with floss - it doesn't stick :D

    Step 4

    Lay the frames down on top of plastic bag - preferably outdoors - and spray away as much or as little color you want

    Step 5

    Some I sprayed completely, some just enough so that the background color would 'p0p'

    Step 6

    Then add some green or whatever other color you want - you should wait for the first color to dry completely

    Step 7

    Glue the backing back on

    Step 8

    Step 9

    This is how they came out

    Step 10

    And put a new picture in them - they make a great gift!

    Step 11

    I will add pictures to these- but here they are hung up- looks better than when they were all different wood. I used the green as a highlight throughout the house so it's a tie-in color
