This morning, I decided I was taking them apart, painting the mats and to darken up the frames. I had no idea if painting the mat was going to mess them up, but the last time I shopped mats, the selection was small. So, I went for it!
|Kinda looks like wood....|
First, I painted the mats with some craft paint, then I brushed a darker stain over the frames. This did darken them, but I wanted more. I took some black paint and painted into the grooves, (one side at a time) and immediately wiped off leaving paint in the grooves.
I like how they turned out!
While, we are one picture frames. I have painted a bunch of them. Why throw them out, when a little paint can make them different.

The black frame (Left) was just like one above and I added onto it and painted.
What kind of projects have you done?
