A Picture Frame Makeover

Yes, Martha Stewart, I can Do It Myself... just barely. I was inspired by Laura over at My Dear Trash to make over this picture frame I found at a garage sale for $2. (I also found a Blue's Clues puzzle, a Fire King cereal bowl and a Starbucks mug)

The picture frame was covered in that cheap brown faux leather which was peeling off. I decided to help it along and peel off all of it.

Next I took off all the hardwear.

Sounds simple right? You would be wrong. Some of the screws would not come out but I wasn't about to give up. I used pliers to pull the screws out and continued to proceed. I took the two pieces outside to paint.

Ryker decided he wanted to help. (Not really. He just wanted his picture taken)

This is the first project I have attempted to redo. I think it turned out well.

At least Ryker thinks so...
