I love to paint all the things! My friends at Homeright have asked me to tell you about a fun contest they’re hosting for the bloggers attending the Haven Conference later this month! You can read all about it over on My Repurposed Life. Meanwhile, I have some awesome picture frames I scored at a great deal lately. I love painting picture frames with my Super Finish Max Extra! I can paint many frames very quickly.
Remove glass, prints and cardboard from thrift store picture frames. You may want to remove hardware and wires.
It’s not necessary to achieve complete coverage with the base coat.
Scoop a little petroleum jelly into a small container. Use cotton swabs to spread the petroleum jelly onto random areas of the black picture frames.
This image shows how the petroleum jelly is randomized on the black picture frames. Paint a topcoat right over the petroleum jelly. Again, complete coverage is not necessary if you're doing chippy frames.
Allow paint to dry, then wipe back the areas that were coated with petroleum jelly. A textured rag works better than a smooth rag such as a t-shirt.
Distressed picture frame chalkboards.
Chalkboards are not only handy, but make beautiful art pieces that you can rest on a table...
I hope you love seeing how easy it is to makeover so many frames at one time. This would be great for a gallery wall, or for selling online or in a booth.
If you're going to Haven Conference later this month, be sure to stop by the Homeright booth to meet Laura and Makayla. You'll be able to pick up a fun t-shirt and get more details on the contest.
If you're not going to Haven Conference, or if you're not a blogger, I have you covered. Head over to My Repurposed Life to enter a fun giveaway from our friends at Homeright.
I am so excited to see the projects entered into the contest. I get to help choose a winner. I can't wait!
Stop by the HomeRight booth at the Haven Conference to enter this contest (for bloggers only!)
