I had bought two old wall hangings at a garages sale for 25 cents a piece. Was not sure what I would do with them but the idea came to me as I was looking at the blank walls in my daughters room. I wanted it to go in her room but what would I do to these other wise ugly pieces? I left the kids with daddy at home and took a trip down the pain isle. I decided on what pink I wanted for my daughters walls then I decided on an accent color. White was the choice. Spray paint seemed to be the best choice for this project. The pieces have some nuks and cranies. So many choices as far as the finish goes as well so I chose mat.
