How many times have you seen old artwork in thrift stores and passed it by? Sandra from Charmed Crown Blog is here today to show you how you can refurbish those old frames to make them modern and stylish again with a bit of Country Chic Paint!

I found this frame while out shopping for thrift-ed goods at my local Salvation Army, I loved the picture in it and the bones of the frame but the color not so much. It was pretty yellow and old looking and not the vintage pretty kind either.

I love that Country Chic Paint launches limited edition colors and Wanderess was one of them from the 2016 Fall/Winter limited edition line.

I instantly fell in love with this color. You probably have figured out by now how much I love whites and grays and blue hues. These neutral and cool tone colors have always been a favorite of mine. But the blue hues get me every time.

Once I started painting this frame with the color Wanderess, I had no doubt I had made the right choice.

This process consisted of wiping the frame clean. I then spray painted it flat gold (Rust-Oleum), let it dry, painted Simplicity over that, let it dry for an hour or two as well, and thirdly painted it with Country Chic Paint’s Wanderess, as much coverage as desired.

Once it all dried for about an hour, I then went back to scratch the surface of it with sandpaper, what ever you have on hand should be sufficient. The gold and Simplicity will show through after a few times of going over it with the sandpaper. Once you’ve reached the desired look you are happy with, wipe it clean with a dry cloth. Now you can seal it with with a natural or dark wax if you’d like. I used Country Chic Paint’s natural wax.

I’m finally bringing a little bit of color into our kitchen a little bit at a time. I’m afraid of going full force so slowly is best for me, but the process of creating something as fun and simple as this with Country Chic Paint it is always possible.
