dandelion key hook picture frame

When I went to DAV the other day I got this cute picture frame with some key holder hooks on it.

This is actually a pic of the back, my camera was dead when I started painting so I improvised.
I'm definitly not into the whole folk art country hearts teddy bears and stars and stripes kinda thing so it needed a little tlc. Since everything in our living room is black well, I decided this little baby needed to be black too. So, out came the trusty flat black spray paint. The center picture was a flag. Not really my style so it became white. I painted a pretty little dandelion on it in black and I think it turned out FABULOUS!
The frame cost $4.95, a little expensive for a thrift store picture frame but I really liked it and had plans the second I saw it so.... I already had the paints so that didnt cost anything. So total for my adorable dandelion key hook picture frame: $4.95! And I LOVE IT! I'm going to find a couple of cute black and white pics to go in the spaces and it will be perfect. And once I get that painting I have planned finished it will match perfectly with the rest of the room. I am excited to get the rest done :)
