Painting the hall frames white

Bet you can't guess what I did by the title.  Just kidding. :)  This wasn't a super creative DIY project, or post title, clearly.  But it was one of my first projects after having Hattie.  Once she fell into a predictable schedule, I felt I could finally do a few things that had been long overdue.  One of them was...yep, you guessed it...painting the hall frames white.

The stairway to our basement is covered with frames.  A project I did awhile back.  But I had just used whatever random frames were hanging around (no pun intended) and just mishmashed them wherever they fit.  Finally, it was time to make them look somewhat uniform.
So, white it was.  I think I did 4-5 thin coats of white spray paint.  Changed out some pictures and hung them back up.
Oh, and I labeled the frames 1-21 with post-it notes so I would know which one went where on the wall.
Then, I hung them all back up.  The only one I didn't spray was the big black frame in the middle.  It has a white matting and I thought it looked nice since all the picture I used were in black and white.
 I can't tell you how happy it makes me when I go get the laundry to see these adorable faces the whole way down.

 It was a good first project to get back into the swing of things.  Just happened to take a few months to write it down.
