Want to give those plain old IKEA frames a little extra bit of pizazz? Of course you do! Here are seven creative (and very inexpensive!) ways to dress them up using paint, tape, and a variety of creative techniques.
Above: All it takes is a little spray paint to add gold corners, and a little touch of glam, to a RIBBA frame. DIY from Repolished.
If you like the look but are a bit shy about commitment, try this DIY, from Viriginia & Charlie, that achieves the same end result with gold tape, which is totally removable.
