Refurbishing an Old Picture Frame and Picture
Refurbishing an old picture frame and picture...
Ok, so I bought this large picture and thought maybe the tree scene would work as is..... Nope, it just looked a little too weathered. The corners of the picture were pealing away. The frame was nice and GOLD before I started getting my hands on it.
Below is after I first spray painted the frame cream.
Then, I decided I was done with the tree scene and started thinking about what I could do next. I'm not a planner. I use what I have in the house or garage.
Took apart the backing...
Pulled out the only white can of paint on my garage shelf.
Kilz White Flat Paint
Had a foam roller on hand...Painted over the not-so-lovely scene (as shown below)...
I had bought a discounted sample can of gray paint. Definitely came in handy!
I freehanded a chevron pattern. Exactly, I said freehand - don't be too critical of my zigzags:))
The frame was way too monochromatic (as you can see in the first picture above) for my taste. I love worn and weathered pieces. I took the same sample gray can of paint from my chevron stripes and brushed a small amount up and down the frames carved detail. I then got a damp paper towel and wiped off the excess gray to my liking.
This chevron picture has been hung several different places around my house for months at I time.
I finally repainted my guest bathroom and thought this my framed chevron picture was the perfect fit!
I love this bathroom now!!
Yep, I'm still loving it......
