Distressing A Frame

Distressing A Frame

We have this lovely gold frame that our neighbours didn't want that I turned into a blackboard. I decided this week that it was just too gold for our style so I did a simple bit of painting to make it look rougher.

I simply found a small paintbrush and some white paint and messily painted all over the frame. I made sure I put paint on the decorative parts around the frame so that it was covered but not neatly. 

Once it was dried I got some sandpaper and just rubbed it over key areas; along the edges, over the detail and just across wooden lengths.

This roughened it up slightly and I now feel it is a bit more in keeping with our tastes.
