Cruising down the aisles of trendy home goods stores, I’m always shocked at the sticker price for a simple picture frame. I love Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware, and World Market but my wallet doesn’t. As someone who likes to decorate for the seasons and change up my household decor, I refuse to pay high prices to display family photos. You can create the same gorgeous look for your photo frames without spending big bucks. All you need is a Dollar Store frame and a little spray paint!

Rust-oleum Universal Metallic Paint & Primer In One
Cardboard or Newspaper
I prefer Rust-oleum’s metallic and hammered options of their paint and primer in one. It can be used on wood, metal, plastic, and brick. The best part of using this brand of paint? You can spray it continuously at any angle without the nozzle gooping up. (These frames were sprayed with the hue Aged Copper, which can be found at any big box hardware store.)
The frames pictured above only cost $4 and couldn’t have been easier to redo. They will look dynamite next to a few fall pumpkins and burlap on the mantel this season.
