We don't shy away from DIYs around here. I'm always reminded of just how frugal I am when I want to switch up décor in my house. I change things up often so I learned real quick that I have to get creative to justify the change (click here for 5 inexpensive ways to refresh a space).
I went to IKEA and found these 24x36 LOMVIKEN aluminum frames for $24.99/ea., took them home and used my favorite gold spray paint on them – Rustoleum Hammered Gold Rush Metal Finish Spray. I also did this with the SILVERHOJDEN IKEA frames, which I have in my entryway.
I’ve used that spray paint on several things in my house, like these wall sconces from World Market. I usually apply 3-4 coats so it doesn’t look hammered because I don’t prefer that look, but if you do then just apply a couple of light coats.
To achieve the look I simply removed the acrylic, matt and backing so I was left with just the frame, and sprayed each one with four coats of the gold spray paint outside where it's well ventilated.
