I have had an idea for the girls room since we moved and had yet to finish it until TODAY!! I was looking for a pair of vintage/antique frames whenever I had the chance to hit up a Goodwill or a garage sale, but had no such luck. I finally bit the bullet and bought some at Hobby Lobby. It bugs me that I had to pay for something I was going to go home and paint/distress, but time was a factor.
The project started like this:
Primed (I wish I had used white primer...the gray made it turn out darker, but I had the gray on hand and used it).
Painting raspberry red. Two days later and four coats of paint later we got a reasonable result!
