coffee break craft

I know I know, I've been a little craftastic/DIY/before & after heavy lately, but that seems to be my life these days. Recently, I was on the prowl for a couple of frames for a clients apartment I've been working on. I stopped in Housing Works and found two crazy looking paintings with wooden frames. Interesting, to say the least. But, I thought the frames had potential!

Here is one of the frames before - Is that man painting a giant vase? Hm.


I primed and painted the mess out of these two frames. Still plowing through my gallon of satin paint in Bone. 

Once I was done painting, I picked up 2 gray brown mats from Michael's (Yea we have a Michael's in Manhattan!) and white damask wrapping paper from a stationary store. 

And here's where I ended up!

So much better, right?
