The picture frame I used had also been hanging around in the kitchen since the holidays and had only been displaced when I planted succulents on the windowsill (which I’ve now moved into the study-o). But since the red mat would not fit in the rest of the house’s color scheme, I turned to an old friend – paint. You can see in this picture that I got started before I remembered to take a photo. Oops.
Painting the picture frame took only a few minutes, which I used to trim down the card. A little dry time and reassembly, and I’m suddenly no longer a house without (framed) pictures on display.
I even remembered another set I received as a gift from Mom over the holidays – a side by side picture of Charlie as a pup and the photo I took of her for my Christmas card (this post has strangely mentioned the holidays three times now. Weird).
See? Push yourself to take the first step, and it’s like you can’t stop.
