I had made this artwork display idea a while ago when we were decorating my daughter’s room in our old house. Now that she’s getting a little older, I have been slowly changing her room a little to adapt to her tastes and maturity. Oh, and did I mention I wanted to do it on a budget? This meant making some slight changes to things she already had, including these frames I made for displaying kid’s artwork.
This is what it looked like before. As you can see she liked to hang her projects from preschool.
They still look great but since I reorganized her room, I wanted to mute the existing colors to match her organization cubes. I decided on painting over them with Martha Stewarts Pearl Acrylic Craft Paint.
This gave them a shiny pearl sheen. Here’s a photo of the difference.
Here are a few close ups.
I used a foam brush and simply painted over the old matching color. I kept the green frame the same but painted over the blue (Aquarium), purple (Eclipse), and pink (Fruit Punch) frames. It dried quickly and I was able to hang them up almost immediately. Even though this was a simple change, it looks much better. Once I finish her room, I’ll share the room tour. Now I am off to paint an accent wall!
