I have a problem.
I am obsessed with frames.
In the past week I've posted about thrift store frames here and here.
And here's another one!
A couple weeks ago I was at Michael's and saw these "antique" skeleton keys for $1.50.
I know skeleton key art was all over the internet a couple years ago... but that's okay. These aren't trendy to me. They're classic!
So... last weekend I was completely procrastinating from working on my school project so I decided it was time to do something with these keys.
I found this little 80's frame from.... the thrift store (surprise surprise).
The brass frame didn't take to the paint as smoothly as wood but that was fine by me. I like that the gold is still showing up in places.
I printed off a random sheet of music from the internet- it's some sort of polka song.. haha.
I spray painted the frame in an box so I couldn't get to the sides at first. Once the front was dry, I was going to flip it on it's side but then I realized it was fabulous as is! I LOVE the two toned look! The gold edges have little black flecks from the spray paint and it adds to the antique look.Don't you just love happy accidents?
Total cost of this little DIY project: $3! Love the price tag, love the look!
