Kids Picture Frame Redo

"You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem,
and smarter than you think."

I love that quote.  I find it to be encouraging and cute at the same time.  I believe it is from the 1997 Disney movie "Pooh's Grand Adventure: The Search for Christopher Robin".  It is something Christopher Robin says to Winnie the Pooh.

I knew I wanted to display that quote so this is what I did:


There were three old sports pictures in plain brown wood frames in the Spencinator's room.  He's not really into football, soccer, or basketball so the theme wasn't something I wanted to keep.  Since the quote has three parts and I had three frames, I decided to print out each part of the quote, and place it into its own frame.

And for a little something extra, I spray painted the frames blue to match his decor better.  

I balanced the frames on old jars so I could paint all sides at once without having the frames get stuck to anything.

Here is what it looks like after:

I know it is hard to tell when they are hung in his room, but it looks nice in person.  Also, notice how I don't show much of the Spencinator's room.  There is a reason for that.

Here is one of the frames before and after:

Pretty cute and pretty simple.
