Today, my hands were too sore so I decided to pull out my sewing machine and start restocking my Etsy Shop “Calicreative”
calicreative on Etsy
The picture frames I found yesterday are in need of a makeover to fit my beach interior decorations 🙂
So this is how i found them before I tackled the 6 picture frames:
(The 6th one is larger so you will see it in the next pictures)
I want them look weathered with some color coming through, you will see what I mean…
I used Gesso (white) since I have a big bottle of it, to set kind of a base to cover the brown of the wood.
(Instead of gesso you can use any acrylic paint in whatever color you fancy of course)
One coat done:
No I have to let it dry and apply a second coat of gesso.
Here is my setup on the dining room table:
This second coat needs to really dry so we all have to wait…:)
I will show you the next stages as I get there of course!
