Chalkpainted Frame

Welcome to Linda It All Started With Paint

Paris Gray Annie Sloan Chalk Paint - took a tired brown frame and turned it into a soft pale gray, a bit worn and buffed background for a little petit point bulldog in a red sweater. Quick little project, washable paint. Used a 1/2" artist brush, painted, waited an hour, gentle sanding on wear points, edges. Light hand with wax application. Waited 30 minutes. Buffed.

  1. Just this morning I was complaining about not have the right frame for a gift I'm putting together - this is all I have to do! Thank you! Great idea. (I'm grinning now, you would think I had thought this up.)
