Out With the Old

I have had this snowman picture in the basement waiting for a new life. I liked the frame and the grapevine on it but not the rest.

  I decided to give it a new life with some spray paint and embellishments. At this stage I already love it.
 I used a small can of Krylon white spray paint and gave it a couple of coats.  I pulled off the yellow wooden star and the rusty snowflake.
 I added some scrapbook paper to the inside of the frame
 and used these scrapbook keys I picked up a while ago at Joann's.
 The final piece.

I am so happy with how it turned out.  Notice our two tone walls.  That is from the enlarged opening to the kitchen.  We are planning on repainting the living room. I am trying to choose the right color.  I picked up hundreds of color swatches at Home Depot.  I am looking forward to the completed room but not the painting.

Love the transformation - it's so sophisticated! I have been painting everything white these days too - just makes it look better.
