Picture Frame Re-do



Remember this frame from this post?


Well, Vicky...if you are reading this, no you can't have it back! haha. I finished it today and I intended to use it as a jewelry holder in my closet...but I liked it so much I decided to hang some pictures on it. Here is the process in action.

Before the paint:


The paint choice:


After four coats of paint:


My fav antiquing glaze:


Sponge-brushed it on:


wax on, wax off. I mean...


Here she is all finished, but before the chicken wire.




And the final product! (I forgot to take an action shot of the chicken wire...but we just stapled it to the back of the frame. And don't forget your gloves...that chicken wire is deadly!)





(New picture!)
