A gaudy picture frame makeover
Good morning! What a beautiful fall day it is out there today. I am also a bit excited our college boy is coming home for the weekend. We don’t get to see him as much these days so when we do, I am always very excited about the weekends spent with him. I miss those days. His brother is quite excited too. I think Jack has asked at least 3 times what time Alex is coming home.
Yesterday I did a little fluffing about the house. I was in in the mood to change out my tablecloth curtains. Although this set was my all time favorite, it was a bit too bright and summer like for the season. I needed to tone it down some. See my tablecloth curtains HERE
It is quite gaudy if I do say so myself. I did however-love the detail and the shape of the frame and knew with a little chalky paint I could make it all pretty and to my style.
I removed the glass and matte border first. I used Waverly chalk paint in a moss color. You can find these little paints at Walmart. They are only about $1.50. I painted the frame with two coats and let completely dry for a few hours. After the frame was dry I used a little wax to bring out the true color. I did not paint the back of the frame. I had no problem with a little gold peeking out.
I am thrilled with how it turned out. This will sit proudly on our Thanksgiving table this year.
I made the printable for all of us:) You can use any 8 x 10 frame. Print HERE
Or head on over to Walmart and pick yourself up a gaudy frame and make it over.
Thanks so much for popping in today. Soon I will show you my new table cloth curtains.
