shabby frame…

I’m sharing this with common ground’s vintage inspiration friday 63! 
I found this frame at my local junk store.  i just added a sloppy coat of white wash paint, being sure to miss spots here and there.  didn’t need sanding or messy staining—so easy, and its looks way better.

here it is dressed up for xmas.


the old wooden star was re-painted in a martha stewart’s “enamelware”, and inked with desert sand ink.  I stamped and inked the tag, too.  I made the fabric rose and added some burlap string to finish it.

have a great weekend, everyone:)

  4. I love it! Visiting from Common Ground. I have a picture sitting in my dining room right now waiting for the frame to be painted. After seeing yours, I KNOW it will be much improved with white paint. Thanks for sharing!

  6. I love it! I would never have bought the frame, wouldn't have seen this beauty in it. Just super in combination with this lovely bleu star.
