The great thing about this project is that it can be done in as little as five minutes and requires very little supplies.
I was happy to find the perfect frame at Goodwill awhile back for $2.99.
I started by taking the backing, hanger and glass off so that I could paint the frame.
Then I started to paint. I didn't want the frame to look super-painted (is that even a word???) so I used a dry brush technique. This allowed for the grain of the wood to still be visible.
For dry brushing you take a dry paint brush and dip it into a LITTLE BIT of paint.
An antique frame requires no painting or handles. A great 5 minute frame simply by adding fabric or paper.
I have a feeling frame trays are going to start sprouting out all around my house!
