I admit...I drop by a Goodwill almost every other day! It's right on my way to town and I just can't help myself! I imagine there is a treasure just waiting for me...and the day I found this frame for $14.99 ...I knew I found it! I wanted to make something with a big impact for my daughter's new apartment and this was the treasure......PURE JOY! (simple pleasures)
It didn't look like much in the beginning but I knew it could be transformed...!
I started off by giving it a good sanding and painted it RED...my favorite color! After letting it dry, I lightly sanded it again along the molding. I painted the molding with a turquoise wash (mix a little water with your paint to make the wash) and gently wiped the excess paint away with a dry cloth. I loved the results but it needed more color so I sanded the molding again and repeated the turquoise wash.
After it was dry I sprayed a light coat of polyurethane to help protect the finish.
Now to the inside...I used the original foam backed picture that was in the frame, sanded it a little and gave it a couple of coats of chalkboard paint. I inserted it back into the frame and it was that simple...!!!
