FRAME WREATH {Before and After}

I picked up an old frame at a garage sale a few months ago.  I knew it had great potential, even though it had ugly Plexiglas in it and a picture of two old people, lol.  I knew just what I wanted to do with it.  And I finally got it done!  I turned it into this beautiful frame wreath for the front door!


Do you LOVE it as much as I do???

Here it is before:


I guess I could have dusted it off! oops.  It has a couple small cracks and chips on one of the raised parts.  But I love how that adds to the character and makes it seem really old!

I had to remove the glass and picture which had been glued in with some kind of weird rubbery glue.  It was hard to get the glue off, but once I did that the rest was textbook.  I gave it a light sanding to rough it up a bit.  Then I spray painted it with Rustoleum Lagoon in satin.


After it had dried for a couple days, I used sandpaper to distress it.  Then I glazed it with a brown glaze I have.  I finished it off with a protective clear coat.  I ADORE the way it turned out!  I want to keep it sooooo bad, but I told myself I would sell it so that is what I am doing.

Price: $38 plus shipping.  Please email me at remarkablehome@gmail.com if you want it.  This is a one and only, so first person takes it!
