Repurposed Pictures into New Wall Art
A little while back my mom gave me some of her old home décor and amongst the haul were these 2 pictures. They used to hang in her kitchen, but she made some changes and no longer wanted them, so I snatched them up.
To start on giving these pictures a new look, I took the glass and pictures out of the frames. Then the frames were sanded lightly and painted with white acrylic paint. The pictures were then painted with a black matte spray paint, and after that they were brushed with 2 coats of black latex paint. I then stenciled my delicate tea design on one picture, and my coffee cup design on the other one. Once everything was dry, I used my heavy duty stapler and fastened them back in the frame, but without the original glass. It was actually pretty easy, and now the pictures and frames have a new look.
This one is what I refer to as the delicate tea stencil because when I cut it on my Cricut, some of the letters are so small and delicate. It works, but I feel like it’s rather, well, delicate. This delicate tea stencil file is available in my resource library for free for email subscribers to this blog. By the way, BIG NEWS, I’m now selling my stencil files in my Etsy shop rather than physical stencils. I would like to invite you to browse through my shop. These files are perfect for making stencils, especially on a Cricut or Silhouette. I’ve got quite a few new stencil designs, and they might be just what you’re looking for! 😉

If you’ve been following me for some time you might remember seeing my coffee cup design using coffee related words. The free coffee stencil JPEG File is in the resource library available to email subscribers to this blog.
Did anyone catch the cat and tiger symbolism? Just a little staging fun. 🙂
If you love coffee or tea and want to update some of your old pictures, these stencils would look great don’t you think?
Thanks for sharing this project!! 🙂
