Painting also done by me.  Recently I painted the mounting board white - it was almost the same colour as the wall.  I used a small foam roller and fine paint brush with a semi gloss paint, and of course masking tape.  It has given it a crisper contrast against the wall and saved time and money going to a framer and getting a new mount.

The table was raw timber so I painted it with a sponge roller and semi gloss, 2 coats.  The roller gave a much better, smoother finish than and brush and was MUCH quicker.  I used a brush for hard to reach places.  Simple maths and some tape for spacing.  The table top took about an hour.  I used a low tack glue stick to keep them from moving so as not to damage the top.  Then I had tempered glass cut to size.  I can change the design or colours any time I like.
