Frames carry such precious memories.
We have a few unmatching ones and I thought of using them together on one wall, so we decided to try our hand at the weathered paint look and I quite like the result, even if I do say so myself!
Pssst… it’s also an awesome activity to do with the ones you love, even the kiddos. My orange one and I did this together and had great fun!
What you’ll need:
White Paint (we used a universal undercoat that we had in the garage)
Brown Paint (we used spray paint (because it was cheapest))
Paint cleaner such as turpentine
Fine to Medium Textured Sandpaper
This is what you do:
Remove glass and back ends of the frames
Place the frames on your old newspapers and wipe down with the old cloth and some turpentine
Sand down to your heart’s desire until you think it has the right look
Put your piccies inside and hang.
Easy as pie!
