Walk into any thrift store and you are sure to find framed art prints in all shapes and sizes. While the picture frames section has never been the first area I hit, it will be now thanks to this fresh idea from Tyler of PLASTOLUX. George has never looked so modern.

Tyler picked up this framed print of George Washington at a local thrift. He brought it home and - in one easy step - transformed George from ordinary to extraordinary. His painted frame compliments the subject on so many levels.

This is a really clever project that's great not only for thrifted pieces, but also for those pieces lying around your house that might otherwise be heading for a date with the local donation bin. Before you donate that old print or pass up that nice frame at the thrift, grab some craft paint and play around.
