Spray Paint and Burlap

My mom gave me this picture a few years back.  It's not really my style (and we're not coffee drinkers), so I'm finally doing something with it!

I began by taking out the picture so I could paint the frame.  The frame was beautiful and solid wood, but I wanted to add a little color to a large wall in our dining area.  I loved the color Ivy Leaf that I used on my Fruit Stand Rehab, so I decided to use it again.  Plus, I thought it would be a good way to pull it all together.  I sprayed two coats of Krylon's Ivy Leaf.  The next day I distressed it by sanding and applying Mocha glaze by Valspar. 

I've been dying to do something with an old piece of burlap that I've had laying around, so I covered the original artwork with the burlap.  I also had this metal "J" that I got at Kirklands a few years back that had been collecting dust, that I decided to use in this project.


Oh, and there's the Fruit Stand!

It's amazing what a little paint and burlap will do!
