Would You Do This DIY?:
Painting Over Existing Pieces

Old Brand New

What hangs on the walls of your home is such a personal decision, but what do you do when you have a piece that you absolutely cannot stand? What if the art work is so unappealing that you couldn't give it away if you tried? The author of the blog Old Brand New has an idea.

The suggestion is to take matters into your own hands and just paint over it! On one hand, I think this is a better solution than to throw the piece into the garbage, but on the other, I don't know if I would have the guts to go through with it. I like the outcome shown on Old Brand New, so maybe it is a good idea.
