Re-purposed Yard Sale Oil Painting

I picked this up for 75 cents a few month back at a yard sale.  I had plans to use the frame for something but when I was picking out material this weekend I had another idea.


I didn't take pictures along the way but I took the print out and spray painted the frame white.  The frame looks like I distressed it but nope, one lazy coat of spray paint.  Love out it turned out!

I then cut the amount of fabric I needed, ironed, taped to the print and secured in the frame. 




It finally found a new home in the hall bath.  The fat quarters are on sale this week for $1.29 at Joann's so for $2.00 I got a nice pop of color in a very dull bathroom.

Check out all of the places I party here!
