Elegant Picture Frames

Frames 1

For Christmas I got 4 frames that were from Ikea.  They were plain and simple but I knew I could make them spectacular!

Frames 2

I stained them to a redish colour for a bold effect.

I then drew an outline of a flower on one of the corners of the frame using pencil.

I wanted to have more stain show through, so I left a 1/4″ border around the whole frame and painted the rest with a white paint.  I had to do 2 coats.

Bring the pedals down the sides to add a better effect

Frames 6

I put Frog Tape around the edges for more crisp lines.  Then I painted silver metallic paint outlines.  The thickness was about 1/8″ thick.  I did this same width around the flower as well!

Then you want to add pedal outlines to the middle of your flower!  Viola!  Your done!

Turn a boring frame into something amazing.
