Paint Old Frames For A Gallery Wall
Create cohesion by painting mix-and-match frames one colour.
"Paint out a bunch of cheap thrifted mismatched frames in one colour to create a gallery wall," suggests Kathryn Bala. These frames are from various thrift stores — some were even found in the garbage! A few coats of matte white spray paint made them like new. Insert your favourite drawings, paintings, children's artwork or photography, and voila, a personalized gallery wall. When the frames are all one colour, feel free to display different styles of art — landscapes with portraits, black and white with colour, objets in shadow boxes with contemporary photography — anything goes!
