I really love how colorful everything is. I'm getting sick of the drab white walls in my apartment, especially my bedroom, and I can't wait until I get a little more time (and good weather so I can open the windows!) this spring to start painting and making stuff!

what paint did you use to paint on wood? i am interested in starting to paint frames. do you just need the paint or something else to put on it. also. can you paint over colors with other colors to do multiple patterns and such? thank you!!! Grin

For most of the picture frames i used acrylic craft paint, which is about $1 a tube at the craft store. I usually use some type of sealer on the wood if it is raw (never been painted before), which saves you a few coats of paint. You can easily paint different colors on top of each other, though let it dry completely between coats. If you are using metallic paint, it is somewhat transparent and difficult to coat all the way through. I usually do one coat of regular paint in the same color and topcoat with metallic paint.
when you are finished, seal with at elast one coat of polyurethane.
Let me know if there is anything else i can help you with.

I LOVE the idea of the plate rack to hold picture frames
