French Cottage Chic~ Crown Prints

I found these little frames while thrifting and just fell in love. So sweetly ornate, so tiny, so charming. But alas, they were also so GOLD. But thanks to the wonder of spray paint, they are gold no more!

This is how they looked pre-transformation:

They are tiny~ about 4 inches square.  I took them outside and sprayed with Rustoleum's Heirloom White.  Such a creamy, dreamy color. 

Then I went to my computer and made my design in MS Digital Image Pro.

After printing, cutting and a little trimming we have the finished product.

As much as I love them, and I do, these little treasures are destined for  my ETSY shoppe, which means they can be yours!  I hope you'll visit my store today. 

Thanks for stopping by and your comment will be treasured!

Linking up to the parties below!
