DIY – Picture Frame Makeover

The second make was not quite as successful as the first :-s

 

I saw this picture on pinterest and tried to recreate it with an old picture frame that I had lying around.

 

 

Painted frame

 

I started off by painting the frame in two coats of Old white Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. This is after painting. Β I forgot to take a before picture but it was once gold. I then sanded down the nobbly bits to highlight the detail. Once cleaned and dusted, I waxed the frame.

Stapling the string

I then got some garden twine and stapled this in rows along the back of the frame.

Mini pegs
and then I attached the mini pegs at about a 10cm distance along the twine.

 

Ta da!!

The finished article
It’s rather large! It looks a bit silly on my tiny desk. Eventually I will get Nick to hang it on the wall and hopefully then it won’t look so odd.
Notice board on the desk
