I have this beautiful landscape in my home -- I've always loved the breezy, outdoor feeling it evokes when I look at it -- BUT I made a mistake when I originally had it framed. I chose this light wood, which I guess I loved at the time, but no longer!
I have other elements in the room, so I thought a nice flat black paint finish would set the image off nicely. I didn't want to deal with brush painting it or worrying about the brush marks, so I decided to go with spray paint. I covered the glass with newspaper and secured it with Frog Tape, then lightly sanded the wood, especially at the edges. I wiped the wood with a damp paper towel and let it dry.
Then I took the frame outside in my yard and set it up on some bricks, so I could get a good coating of paint along the side. The paint dried so fast and with such a smooth finish --- I was delighted with the final result.
Hung it back on the wall an hour after removing it!
