Distressed Wood Frames

Sometimes, I like to do big projects,
like the dresser I shared last week.

The Old Block House

Sometimes I like to do smaller projects,
like my sheet music fans
that I made at Christmas.

Then there are the mid sized projects,
like my frames.

Frames are always finding their way into my craft stash.
Often, they are from auctions,
sometimes from the thrift store,
and occassionally a good one shows up at a yardsale.

The frames have multiplied to about 100.
A few were used to make these aqua frames.

Another ten or so were given a coat of heirloom white,
then distressed with 60 grit sandpaper,
and waxed with a clear wax paste.

I've listed the frames in my shop
and used the shop addy to fill the frame
as it didn't have a picture.
I neglected to save the picture before adding my shop addy,
so I've just added a few of the photos to the blog post.

If you'd like to see more of the frames,
you can visit my shop.

My favorite

I'm hoping to do a few more frames this upcoming week
as memo boards with a fabric backing
and with chicken wire to clip things to.
