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. I’ll be sharing How to Change Old Prints into New Wall Art in this post.
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 cut a stencil using my Cricut and Show Offs Stencil Blanks. Then I stenciled my delicate tea design on one picture, and my coffee cup design on the other one, both of which can be found in the Resource Library, which is an email subscriber bonus.
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 tea stencil that I designed is 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.
Cute little kitty I scored at a garage sale.
If you’ve been following me for some time you might remember seeing my coffee cup design using coffee related words.
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 How to Change Old Prints into New Wall Art!!
