Picture Frame Makeovers

Back in October, we had our family pictures taken. I have been meaning to frame and display them for the longest time!  Took me long enough, huh??  I'm limited on local home decor stores in the town/small city that I live in, so I have to use my resources to the best of my abilities and be a little creative!

I wanted a mat that was a color instead of white to create some contrast against my white rental home walls.  So, I went to Hobby Lobby and had a custom navy mat cut.  Quick and pretty inexpensive.

I loved the style & texture of these smaller frames, but not really the finish.  To remedy this, I simply spray painted them.

The arrangement of pictures is on a skinny wall in between the front door and large window, so I chose to arrange them vertically.  Here is the finished product:

It's nice to finally have some current family pictures up to enjoy!
