When I visited the 2011 Interior Design Show I fell in love for the pink flamingo print in a bright yellow frame in Sarah and Theo Richardson’s booth. It combined two colours, Honeysuckle which is the colour of the year, but also with Yellow, the colour of the Summer. 🙂 The print, purchased at Chair Table Lamp wasn’t available for purchase but the inspiration was ignited and I set out to find a way to have the print.
I found the print online at AllPosters.com and sprayed the IKEA Ribba (40 x 50cm) frame yellow with Valspar Gloss Yellow Paint from Lowes.
Because I’m particular, I replaced the matting that the IKEA frame came with, with a new white mat that I cut on my mat cutter, choosing to rest the print ontop of the mat, instead of behind it. I love, love it.
Goes to show you how you can hack a simple IKEA frame with a can of spray paint.
