Spot the difference
Can you spot the difference between these two pictures?
Look a little closer.
Yeah, yeah, the plant’s different. That’s not what I’m talking about. I painted the picture frame!
I admit, that the gold *might* look better in the photos above. They’re better shots to begin with. But trust me, the gold on the botanical frames is really cheap looking in person. You can tell a little more in the photos below.
I dug into my awesome stash of My Color by Pantone Paints and chose Whitecap Grey. It’s the really creamy greige on the bottom left.
I painted both frames, although I don’t have the purple one anywhere yet.
A little “learn the hard way” tip: I taped off the glass to paint the frames (since the backs were sealed) and in my hurry to remove the tape after my final coat, some of the paint peeled off the inside rim. Grrrrrrr. On the second one I used an exacto knife to loosen the seal.
I knew better. Don’t be in a hurry. Don’t end up in a bathhouse with Charlie Sheen.
Have a stellar weekend, my friends!
