My waiting finally paid off when I found this beauty at a thrift store. I was even more estatic because I bought it on "Half-off Day" so I got the frame for $2.50. Amazing. Hunk rolled his eyes as I walked out of the store carrying this honkin' frame, but I knew exactly what I was going to do with it.
Look at the detail. Isn't it amazing? Yeah, that what I thought too.
So how did I turn this frame from drab into fab? Well, if you remember the tutorial on spray painting the turquoise end table then you will follow those exact steps.
First, I primed the frame using Kilz Primer. Don't bother buying any other type. I have tried them all and Kilz rocks.
While, the primer dried I took a paper mache block letter that I had laying around the house and I traced out a "B" on fabric. Important: make sure to paint the edges and back side of the letter, since the fabric with only cover the front portion. I ended up using Mod Podge to attach the fabric to the letter. Easy. Easy. Easy.
Once the primer was dry I then sprayed Krylon Ivory spray paint onto the frame. After running a few errands, eating some chow, wrangling punk, and having FHE with my hunk's crazy fam. (They are crazy, but amazing). I then came home to a dry frame which could then be glazed.
The picture, below shows what the frame should look like after the glazing. If you don't remember how to glaze, well then head on over to All Things Thrifty to see my favorite glazing tutorial.
Don't forget. This Wednesday I will be having my first giveaway! Come on back tomorrow to see what awesome prize you could win!
