Hi, friends! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. Cool weather is finally here, and it is such a welcome change. We were in the 90's yesterday, and in the 40's at the moment. I will get back to my fall decor post, but I had to finish this project. This frame has been sitting in my garage for way too long, and every time I pull in there I keep thinking I have to finish this. Here it is! Finally!
This is the first time that I have ever used three types of paint on one project. The base of the frame is Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Emperor's Silk Red. I wanted to tone the frame down a little, so I used another favorite, Martha Stewart Metallic Bronze. It blended so well with the red after I applied the dark wax..
I also have a new favorite! I absolutely love the Sharpie paint pens. They are so easy to use, and give you great control. I've been amazed how many projects I have completed with one pen. There's a lot more paint in that little pen than you would think. Below is the transformation stages.
Trying to get a decent photo is the reason it has taken me all week to get this posted. Our weather didn't care that I needed some sunlight. So I apologize now that the photos are not the best.
I also had these three small frames that I had been wanting to use with antique skeleton keys. I have a major love for those keys. One of my very first blog post I shared was finding my grandparent's skeleton key to their old farm house. When I found the fabric, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with those frames.
I used the same three paints on these little frames.
I had this jute webbing left over from a chair makeover, and it was perfect to attach the frames. They originally had hooks that connected them.
Thank you so much for stopping by. I love your visits. I will be getting back to more fall decor, but I just had to get this project out of the way. I still have to tackle my fireplace mantel. If you are a new follower, please be sure and leave me a comment. I love to return the follow. :)
