Easy DIY Wall Art Transformation

A sweet friend of mine was cleaning out her house and gave me this adorable piece of wall art. I was feeling crafty and decided to give the frame a little personal touch by transforming the color.


With a paint brush, craft paint, painters tape, and a little bit of creativity, I was able to change the look of this piece with very little effort.

I purchased a craft acrylic chalk paint in the shade “Elephant”. Before applying the paint, I taped off the art using some painters tape.

Waverly “Elephant” Acrylic Paint

I applied the craft paint with a small paintbrush that I borrowed from my daughter’s art stash. Because I wanted some of the original frame color to show, I applied the paint in a very thin layer and only did a single coat.

I let the paint dry for about 15 minutes, carefully pulled off the painters tape, and voila! This is one of the easiest DIY projects I’ve ever done. The change is subtle but I love it!
