DIY “Brushed Bronze” Spray Painted Frames

I’m in love with the brushed bronze look. Every brushed bronze look is different, but in general, it’s a metallic bronze-y color (LOL as I’m sure you could have guessed!). Anyway, I had some picture frames that my mother-in-law had given me, but they needed a serious makeover before we could hang them. So I told Jay that I wanted to spray them with a brushed bronze spray paint. We went to Walmart with the intention of getting the spray paint, however, we found out that they didn’t carry any brushed bronze spray paint. Instead of going 20 miles in the other direction to go to Lowe’s, we just decided to buy some paint at Walmart and try to make it work. My hubby is pretty good with spray paint.

The Princess Project

I don’t know about you, but I remember my junior and senior Prom Queen at my senior prom. I was lucky enough that my family bought my prom gowns. Unfortunately, there are plenty of young women who don’t get to experience feeling like a princess at prom, simply because they and their families can’t afford to buy a prom gown. However, there is an organization that collects gently used prom dresses and distributes them to families and girls in need. They’re called the Princess Project. Read below the jump for more information.
