GIVING PICTURE FRAMES A QUICK SPRAY PAINT IS A GREAT WAY TO TIE THEM INTO YOUR INTERIOR SCHEME AND ADD A POP OF COLOUR INTO ROOMS.

If you are on a budget, look out for second-hand photo frames in charity shops and car boot sales – no matter what their condition you can easily bring them back to brand new, plus they make the perfect customised gift!

Take a look at the step-by-step guide below to see how it’s done.

Once you’ve cracked it, take a look at more project inspiration for frames here.

STEP 1.

Remove the glass and back of the frame. Sand the frame lightly and clean with a damp cloth. Cover the area where you are painting with newspaper and ensure it is well-ventilated.

STEP 2.

Always follow the instructions on the back of the can. For a better finish, apply a light coat of Rust-Oleum Surface Primer and leave to dry before applying the top coat.

STEP 3.

Apply your chosen colour (or colours) of Rust-Oleum Painter’s Touch in multiple light coats to avoid any paint runs. Two or three light coats will be enough using a continual back and forth motion.

STEP 4.

Leave the frames to dry for 24 hours, then replace the glass, insert your photograph and re-fit the back of the frame.
