I saw this tutorial a few months back and knew I wanted to try and spruce up some plain brown frames I have hanging on a small wall next to our butler’s pantry. This particular tutorial used spray painted painters tape, but I decided to just put the “gold” right on the frame. These frames aren’t anything that exciting or expensive, so I just went for it, and I love the result. These photos of the kids are a few years old but something is keeping me from updating them (denial that they are getting older!), so they will stay as is for now.
For this quick project, I used Rub n’ Buff (one of my favorite products) and Frog tape.
I measured 3” from each corner and made small pencil marks where I would place the tape. No leveling here, just eyeballed it.
After you have it taped off, start applying your “gold”. I used both my finger and a small paint brush to apply the R n’ B.
Once your gold has dried, simply peel off the tape and admire your new frames!
Here is a comparison of the frames before and after.
Such a quick and easy update. It’s all in the details for me!
