DIY Snippet: Easy Update for Framed Oil Painting

Before

I bid on this loverly piece on eBay and received it a few months ago. I loved the painting but knew the frame could be painted and given  an updated look. Framing these days is so expensive and if you can do something on the cheap ( like buy a $3 paint pod with primer in the paint?!) then I say "GO FOR IT!" 


After

She's gone blonde and ready to find out if they really do have more fun!!  The lighter frame really softens the colors in the painting and gives it an overall vintage vibe that I was looking to convey. Best of all- this project was inexpensive and fast- my two favorite things!!
