Antique Frame turned Bulletin Board

 I found this frame at an antique store. It was old and the stain was faded. I could have re-stained it. Since I had the gold push pins I decided to paint the frame gold.



What I love most about antiquing is to make something mine. Transform it - redo it - reinvent something old into something new again. 

Don't worry about the patio It's getting a makeover!

I primed and spray painted the frame then I washed over it with thinned down black paint. 'Easy Peasy'!


I love how it turned out.

I love the fabric you used on the frame! Great use of an old frame. I have a few in my stash that I have to work on too.

Mary,

If you need any of the fabric I can mail it to you. I know we both love the green toile.
