I primarily decorate in a coastal cottage or shabby chic style. Here in my area...finding those type of decor items can be a difficult process. Most people around here decorate in a country or victorian style, totally not my taste at all.
Recently I picked up three of these wooden photo frames at my local Dollar Store. They are the perfect size for sitting on a bookshelf, table top or on a wall shelf. While I love the style of the picture frames...I did NOT like the color of the wood at all. I bought them any way and decided to repaint them myself. I picked up one can of flat white spray paint from Lowe's and I was ready to rock and roll.
If you want to add a little texture or crackling to your paint finish...sprinkle a little table salt onto the wood and then lightly spray your paint. I do that for some of my projects but for this particular one I didn't do the table salt technique as I wanted a nice flat white finish. Once they are completely dry, insert the glass back in, your photos and then add your back. Done!!!
In my opinion...the frames look a whole lot better being turned into white frames and next on my list is to buy some tiny 2" and 3" diameter sand dollars and starfish which I am going to glue onto the frames to decorate them. I will update this post once I complete that portion next. Enjoy!
