I am sorry to have let you all down so! Back story first - I bought this old, unattractive and empty frame at Goodwill back in December. My original intention for the frame was to do something I saw on Pinterest. I really wanted to have some fun pictures taken of my family and use them for Christmas Cards. Like I said, I found the idea on Pinterest and followed it to the Blog.
Rust-oleum Spray Paint in Black Gloss.
Following this coat, I roughed up the surface a bit because of it being a Gloss Coat. I then tried out a technique I also saw on Pinterest from the Brassy Apple Blog. Here is the link to that project (It is really cool - my project does not do it justice):
I used a bar of Dove Soap and rubbed it around the edges and sides. Time for full disclosure.... I am obsessed with the color Teal! It is popping up all over my house - my Kitchen walls are a light Teal which about gave the Hubby a coronary when he saw only a small section painted. Can you guess what my final top coat color was? Bet you can't! You could win one million doubloons if you guess correctly.... no takers? Okay fine then, the color I chose was dark Teal. I used a Satin Spray Paint in a color called Lagoon by Rust-oleum for this coat. Just two coats and done. I then used a low grit sanding stone and lightly sanded the areas where I had rubbed the soap. When I say lightly, I mean lightly. I may do more later. Anyway, here is another pic of the finished product. I love it!
How you like my Peacock? I painted it in one of those drink wine and we will teach you how to paint classes! I think it turned out good enough to hang in my Living Room! I was happy as a clam when my seven-year-old came out and saw it and said "Wow Mommy you are a really good painter"!
See You Soon....
