DIY Metallic Frames

 { remember that framed fabric DIY I did? 
You can see the 'ugly people' I was talking about above }

For our wedding, I wanted to be as crafty as I could to really personalize our special day (and save money). I started shopping early on (well, not that early considering we planned our wedding in five months) and would hit up various thrift stores, at least weekly in my hunt for picture frames.  Once I had a good variety, I grabbed some metallic silver spray paint from the local hardware store, and went to work. The finished product looked so great at the wedding. We displayed our engagement shoot photos in the frames, which we had kept a secret from everyone until that day.
