If you've been following this blog for a while, then you've seen this corner of my living room before (HERE and HERE). I like to change things up once in a while, so a week or so ago I hung up the artwork that was previously leaning against the wall. I added a new print that really caught my eye - the photo of the boats, which I picked up at Chapters on clearance - and decided it should go here too, so up went a small gallery wall.

But then there was something about having the prints up there that made them blend into the wall rather than pop out and catch your attention. Maybe it was just me, but I needed to do something and I knew just what to do.

I love gold as an accent, and since I have quite a bit of gold popping up throughout the room, I decided to give the frames a little paint dip effect with gold spray paint. This project was so easy to do, yet what a difference it made! I love the result and couldn't be happier.
