I found these great frames at a tag sale for $2.00 each. The label says "Danielson Designs" and it looks like they sell for around $25.00 each. Score! I like the frames as they are, but I needed three matching - or at least, coordinating frames , so bye-bye brightly colored frames.
The frames need to be white and it took some serious sanding to remove most of the color, plus a couple of coats of primer and a couple of coats of white paint. I used white house paint from my supply, mixed with Floetrol to help eliminate the brush strokes I always leave behind.
Then I hot-glued on some twine to add texture and brushed on some diluted white paint to tone down the brown a bit.
I'm in love with fabric flowers and made a few using some fabric scraps.
Here are my new frames- perfect for my white and blue color scheme.
I brushed some of the diluted white paint on the flowers to tone the color down a little. And added some tulle leaves.
I used a large stamp as a pattern for this burlap flower.
These frames will be finding a new home in our family room, AKA the dormitory when we have lots of company! More restful than all that color and pattern.
