Yesterday afternoon was beautiful so it gave me the perfect chance to get outside to whip up this super simple project for the girls' new room. I found the framed fruit bowl print buried in the back of my closet, where it's been for nearly 4 years since we moved into this house. I simply tore apart the paper backing and removed all the staples and then removed the print, mat, and glass. Then I took it outside along with a wall hook that I picked up for $2 at Hobby Lobby.
A can of dove white spray paint (@ $3) was all that was needed to transform these items into a cohesive art piece for the wall. I gave it about 2-3 coats, allowing it to dry between sprays. Once dry I removed the D-rings that were already on the back of the frame and screwed them into a vertical arrangement instead of the horizontal position they came in. I forgot to take a photo of this step but it was super easy. Just measure and mark and then screw into their new places.
Then I just marked the wall where I wanted the frame to hang and hammered in a few nails. Do the same with the wall hook...be sure to paint your screw heads white as well so they don't stand out. Hang a cute infant sweater, gown, dress, etc. This was my pink sweater from when I was an infant. Cute, huh?! This was so easy to do, only cost a few dollars and it looks great in any kid space! Try it! I'm working on finishing a few more things and then I'll reveal the entire room re-do! Happy Wednesday!
