I bought this frame at Christmas Tree Shops, because I loved the look of the old barn wood and the texture. What I didn't love was the flower painting. The frame was $6.99, so I decided I would buy it and give it a facelift. This was really simple...
I painted it a coat of white latex paint. Then, I went over it ever so gently with the blue paint that I have on the walls in our kitchen and some of the great room. I didn't want to cover it with the blue, just bring out the texture. I think it looks like old beach cottage planks. Then, I recently got some burlap and wanted to try some rosettes with the fabric (I must say, burlap isn't as easy to manipulate as some other fabrics I have used). I liked the way they turned out, so I popped them on the frame at the bottom. I had a picture of my son walking the beach, so I added that...waiting on another photo to come in the mail that I think I'll like better, but for the purpose of the blog, this works.
I have recently painted the wall up the stairs and this is a work in progress, taking my time with it. But, this is what it looks like at the moment. :-)
