Good Will Frame- $1.25 total and Announcement!!

Of course, I am joining the party at The Shabby Chic Cottage. Please check out the site for more great ideas!!!

This is the frame, before. I picked it up at Good Will for .25! I didn't like the gold nor the picture, so here is my Transformation Thursday Project this week.

I spray painted it with one of my new favorite colors by Krylon- Bahama Sea.

I am not really a 'blue person' but really liked the color of this paint. 092709 045

Then, I rubbed (with a paper towel) some craft paint in Metallic Bronze (another new favorite). I almost sanded the frame to let the gold show through, but wasn't sure how that would turn out w/this 'nice' gold plastic frame, so I replicated the feel w/the paint.

Then, I cut some scrapbook paper (had on hand) and did an "A" stencil with black craft paint.
here is sits in my kitchen window. Even hubby said he liked the transformation (AND he noticed the small touch.)

I am a blue person and I love the color of the frame. I also like what you put in it. Gorgeous and well done for a quarter.
