Upcycled Goodwill Frames

I picked up these petite ornate frames at our new Goodwill on Monday.  They measure about 5" for the big one and 3" for the little one.  They were a little tarnished but I recognized the potential and snatched them up for about $6 for both.
Here is the before.  Don't you love the detailing?!  And here they are after a couple of coats of spray paint (yes, I braved the cold just so I could spray paint these!).
I wasn't sure whether to leave them empty or add some pictures.  While I'm deciding, I added these two lovely religious photos from The Graphics Fairy.
It's amazing what a couple of coats of paint can do.
What do you think?  Keep them empty or keep the religious photos?

The religious pictures seems to be selling on all etsy blogs so leave the pictures in
They look so much better with your spray paint
