Ikea Hack Part 2

Today I'm sharing another Ikea 'mini-hack' with you all. I say mini-hack because I didn't so much 'hack' the piece, but just gave it a good spray paint to change it up a little. No matter how simple, it's nice to see a fresh upgrade to some old pieces we've had around the house.
Everyone who shops at Ikea knows the standard Ribba style frames. I have a collection in a variety of finishes - black, white and silver. In our living room we have a small gallery wall of frames inusing the white Ribba frames, including one of the square shadow box-type frames. While I was spray painting yesterday's table, I had a sudden inspiration to add a little gold to this wall to add some pop.

Super easy. I took out the wooden shadowbox insert and simply gave it a few quick coats of my metallic gold spray paint.  

Once I put the frame back together, instant pop of color!

It's a subtle change, but one I feel definitely adds a little something to the wall of white frames. Since these photos I've also added a thin gold frame with a navy blue silhouette print to the wall to tie the gold together. Our walls will soon be getting a fresh coat of paint and I may rearrange the wall a bit when finished.

  3. Ha! OMG I literally just bought a Ribba frame yesterday and was planning on spray-painting the entire frame gold for my Aestate Lips print! Love the detailing you gave this frame! And could your little one be ANY cuter?
