Revamp and recycle old picture frames with spray paint

If you have any old mismatched frames that no longer coordinate with your colour scheme, a can of spray paint can be a great investment. For less than £10 you can transform numerous frames – which works out much cheaper than replacing them, and much kinder on land-fill too!

We used different shades of grey and blue on some frames that matched neither our artwork or the décor. (Rust-Oleum Painter’s Touch in Dark Grey, Navy Blue, Slate Blue and Winter Grey).

Some small photo frames were given the spray paint treatment, and despite costing just a few pounds in a charity shop they look a lot more expensive with an elegant, white satin finish. (Rust-Oleum Painter’s Touch in White Satin)

Add some colour to a room by using a bold colour on your photo frames, we chose Rust-Oleum Painter’s Touch in Balmoral (Gloss) and Real Orange (Gloss) to coordinate with our retro artwork.

Rust-Oleum spray paints are available from B&Q, Homebase and other leading stockists. For further details visit the Rust-Oleum website, where you’ll discover a world of ideas and inspiration. What will you spray?
