A Salvaged Frame


I found this frame at my favorite salvage store last week.

I liked the chunky size but not the veneer.
I thought the back side had some potential.  It is real wood and pretty rough.
So I cleaned it up a bit.
Then I cut some chicken wire down to size and stapled it to the front side of the frame.
Now to get ready for the spray paint…
I want the paint to be all chippy so I am using the “vaseline technique”.
(I used up all my vaseline but this is a similar “goop”)
Spray paint it a flat white.  Let it dry completely before scraping.
Using a spackle knife – scrape the ‘goop’ off and also other areas that I want the wood to show.
Where the “goop” was it looks like the paint was really chipped off.

I can think of so many ways to use this….

For today…this is where it will go.
