And by bling I mean distressed vintage-inspired awesomeness.
If you have any picture frames lying around waiting to be jazzed up, this project is perfect. Some were as cheap as 99 cents (poppin’ tags yo) and some I paid a little more at around .
The other two of the 6 were this brassy gold plastic, which, unfortunately, I forgot to snap a before shot of (bad blogger! Believe it or not, I have never done a chalk paint project. I used the Folk Art Chalk Paint in Java on four of the frames, and I used Rustoleum Oil Rubbed Bronze on the other two just to see if there would be a major difference. You can apply the paint immediately after rubbing on the Vaseline. For my top coat color, I used the Folk Art Chalk Paint in Parisian Grey. I chose to use the Java color again leftover from my base coat.
Spray paint would even work too if you didn’t have chalk paint. To dry brush, dip an artist brush into the paint, and swipe off the paint onto a paper towel until the bristles are dry.
Not pictured but always a good idea: oyster crackers!
And good luck with the sliding closet door project!Updating your fireplace can seem overwhelming, but let me tell you it’s not as hard as it seems and if you’re really determined (like me) you can get it done less than 24 hours! One of my best gal pals was moving into a new house, so I trucked on down to Maryland to help move and to try to tackle a few fun projects.The fireplace wasn’t even something they had thought of me working on, but the moment I walked in, it was SCREAMING for some DIY love from me. Your paint mix will be really thin, so you’ll want the rag in hand to catch any drips.The first time I made Cincinnati Chili, I was pretty sure I wouldn’t like it. Looking over a few different recipes as I went, I realized it was more meat sauce than soup.
