I LOVE picture frames and pictures, so when I was at a dollar store the other day and saw this frame that was well ugly and a little to metallic gold/orange for my taste. But the thing had potential-nothing a little paint couldn't help. So after priming the and painting then of course destressing this is how it turned out.
LOVE this! I have done this before, but im curious as to how you distressed it without the orange coming through? I want to do that to mine! Thanks for sharing!!ReplyDelete
Yes, I too am curious how you distressed it without the orange coming through???? :)ReplyDelete
I know right? I am lucky I guess! I was worried about that too. I used white spray primer and then spray paint in white and then white paint with a brush. lots of steps but it didn't take long. I think that I distressed right through the orange.. I am going to try another just to make sure. These would be SOOOO CUTE in a little girls room in light pink... oh yes! and for $1.50 per frame and it has real glass your can't beat that.ReplyDelete
thats awesome, thanks for responding so quickly! I recently did a 5x7 frame that was very similar to yours, and it was accidently knocked off the top of my bookshelf and when it fell, it broke because the beautifulness is hollow! so wherever you put it, be careful! good thing they're only a dollar, so its easily replacable! I Love your blog :)ReplyDelete
