DIY: Gold Corner Frames

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!
