My Newest Frame Project

I have found many, many great ideas from Pinterest.  That is another thing I am obsessed with right now.  One of the neat things on there is a wall of black and white photos in frames.  I plan on doing a big mural type thing as you walk up the stairs in the new house.  I will have it in order from when my kids were the youngest to their current pictures.  I have been gathering my favorite family pictures since school ended to make the perfect wall.  On a side note, I wanted a picture frame in my bedroom of my 3 favorite pictures of my boys.  I was on the lookout for a large frame.  I just didn't want to spend a lot of money.  That's when I saw this picture on my wall.  I have been wanting to get rid of it for a while, well because the frame is gold!  I came up with an idea.

 Dismantle the whole picture frame.

 Tear off the pictures of the tulips.

 Paint the frame the same color as the trim in my house.

I had to use 3 coats.  Now, I am not quite finished.  I went onto and ordered some poster size prints of my favorites photos of my kids.  They should be here on Monday so I can finish the project.  I plan on cutting the pictures to a 12 inch by 12 inch size and using Mod Podge to put them over where the tulips used to be.  Hopefully it will turn out just as I hope it will.  I will post pictures next week of the finished product!!
