Turquoise Frame Makeover

5:00 AM

I found this ugly little frame at the thrift store for $.50
I liked the design in the frame and got it for a little accessory for the baby corner.

I took out the glass and Isaiah, and primed it with the gray spray paint primer. 

The baby stuff is mainly red and white, and a few accents of turquoise.  So this frame is a turquoise piece.
I just used acrylic craft paint and a sponge brush to paint it. 

It seemed a little too bright and flat, so I took some glaze and a little of a lighter blue paint mixed it together.
I used the sponge brush again to just dab it on the surface. 

Then to seal it, just clear spray paint.  There was this old ocean post card in it, I just left it until the baby is born and then I thought a baby photo would be good to fill this little frame.

  1. I love how many things you prime and repaint for use. I still haven't tried it and am thinking I'm lame for not following your lead.

  2. what a great color..it'll really pop against the red and white I'm sure!


Thank you for stopping by, we love to hear from you!
