Nice right? Well, the other day I was wandering through Joann (the same day I was scolded, coincidentally) and she was on my mind. Not in a weirdo way, but in a "Boy, I liked that peg board. If I found something like that, I would do it too."
I happened upon the clearance section and found some super ugly frames with hangers attached to them. They were a steal:
You ain't go no alibi!
(Please tell me I'm not the only one who remembers that one.)
I loved them immediately and knew that this was how I would translate Ginger's project in my own home.
Here's what you do to get these amazing results:
First, pick a pretty paper and cut it to fit the frame. Spread Mod Podge on the frame and lay your measured and cut paper on top. I like to use a credit card to mash my paper down to avoid bubbles.
Let your Mod Podge dry. Then, apply another coat of Mod Podge over the top of your paper. Let dry.
Then, I took my frames and sprayed them with Mod Podge acrylic sealer. This gives the frame a certain sheen that makes it look painted, in my opinion.
Next, I spray painted the silver part of the hangers a brushed nickel. Totally not necessary, but I like the way spray paint smells so I couldn't just leave it out.
I decided to paint the knobs blue. This pains my husband. To be honest, we'll probably paint them brown because the blue knobs are the only thing holding him back from jumping on board with this project.
I like to make him happy, so I'll hook him up with the brown knobs. (Now, there's a phrase I never thought I would type.)
I chose some sweet pictures to display and hung them on the wall in between our guest bathroom and coat closet. I think they're already enjoying their makeover and their new home.
