I've had these frames above my piano for a year now. The wall is tall and quite big, and I had been trying to find something to fill the space. I went to a bunch of D.I.'s and other thrift stores to find frames. These are what they looked like before I painted them, don't mind the crap on the piano!
I painted them a deep purple, and it didn't come out exactly the way I wanted it to. They were pretty dark and the detail of the frames blended in too much.
It's taken me a complete year to date to finally change the color. I still don't think I'm "in love" with the color, but it brightens up the room a lot more, and you can see the great texture of the frames.
My inspiration was from Blueprint magazine before they vanished after only 8 issues.

After I had painted my frames the blue, I came across this darling blog. She has empty frames painted all one color in her master bedroom. I absolutely love the look she created.
You need to check out her blog, and make sure to look at the pictures of her house, they are so unique and cute.
