Picture Frame Upgrade

I finally got around to a simply little project, and I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out.  Do you guys remember this picture frame?

My sister found this when she was cleaning out her office and told me she was going to throw it away. I decided to keep it. I liked it for two reasons; it's big, which makes a visual statement, and it was free! 

Not only was it pretty ugly (that gold border- UGH!) but it was also damaged:

So I figured I'd give it a little face lift using supplies I already had on hand so I wouldn't have to spend any money. Here's the finished product:

After a good sanding and fresh coat of paint, it looks new! I used some left over fabric from another project to fill the glass with a fun pop of color.  It makes me so happy to bring life to my home without spending a dime! It's a simple little project, that I may try to customize a bit more later, but for now, its a quick and easy improvement.

Thanks for stopping by!
