Picture Frame - Upcycle....

Here's the 11x14 frame that held my wedding photo. I bought it on sale at Michael's Crafts right before we were married in May 2005.

A few weeks ago, I found this gold frame at Goodwill for $1.00. It was missing the glass but for just a dollar, I couldn't pass it up. The gold isn't my favorite but I know that its nothing that I can't fix with a few sprays of Heriloom White by Rustoleum.

So I lightly sanded and primed it gray. I wasn't really concerned about full coverage of the primer because I planned to distress it.

Here it is... I sanned it a little to distress somewhat.

Up close...

Here it is hanging on my wall. I think it looks better - an improvement anyway...


  1. I like it. Can you come live near me? It's still in the country and then you could help me thrift!

  2. ha!!! i wish i could get back to ky!

  3. I really love the look of that white frame against the dark wall. It is absolutely beautiful. Well done!


feedback please!!! i love it!
