Ever wonder what you could do with all those old and leftover frames around your home? Don't have any frames? - Thrift stores usually have an abundunce of them for super cheap! I got mine at the thrift store Unique for 1.99 plus got an extra 50% for M.L.K. day weekend.
I forgot to take a "BEFORE" photo, but this is with a single coat of Zinsser Cover Stain Primer (No sanding).
Next i simple measured, and taped out my stripes, you can do however you would like- thick, thin, chevron, polka dots, horizontal, vertical…
and then spray paint it.
*you could also spray paint the whole thing, let it dry, and THEN tape off the pattern so you get 2 different colors, i wanted to distress my frame once it was done so i chose to leave the white showing and then use Valspar's Antiquing Glaze from Lowe's.
Let the paint dry and remove tape.
My paint had dripped a little under the taping BUT that is okay because that is the beauty of distressing a piece, it masks the OOPS!
Next you want to measure the frame, and also the inside of the frame.
outside measurement: 10.5x12.5 in.
inside measurement: 7x9 in.
Off to the craft store I go……
I picked up this Curlyz Unfinished Wooden Letter at Hobby Lobby for 3.49, you're going to drill a small hole at the top of the letter and then simply spray paint it the color of you choice. I thought this lagoon color would look neat with the frame colors.
Measure out how far down you would want the letter to hang down, and cut the appropriate amount of ribbon of your choice.
After you've cut your ribbon you're going to thread it through the hole we made earlier. Next you're going to flip over the whole project and screw/nail the ribbon into the back of the frame (make sure its the right dangling height!)
