Revamping an old Frame

Revamping an old frame! My mantle has been a thorn in my side! I've changed a billion times since we've moved in, and I think I'm finally getting to where I like it. Anyway, here is a project I'm finally posting!
A place to display old family photos.


I have this frame I bought at a scratch and dent sale at Pottery Barn years ago. As you can see the middle piece has always been loose. I thought it was time for some revamping.
I sprayed painted the outside this aqua color that I love. It krylon at Home Depot, the best spray paint out there!
Next I mod podge on some paper with a fun damask print.
Lastly I spray painted the inside part white and drilled some holds for hooks at the top.
Instead of laying out my pictures into the grid part of the frame I decided to clip them on useing cafe curtain clips. I used a combination of old family pics and new ones.
