Painted Frame Makeover and a Free Fall Printable

Is it wrong of me to boast for a quick second? My passion is decorating my home as well as homes of clients and friends. But the thing that I am most proud of is that I can do it on a budget. I actually get excited when I can create a room makeover or a new project with little to no cost. Being that all of my Fall decor is in storage, I have had to get very creative. Yes, I could go out and buy a lot of things to fill my home and my Fall-loving-heart full of pumpkins, gourds and pretties. But my spirit just won’t let me do it. I would much prefer to create things that are special and meaningful to me and easy on my wallet. Today’s project is a perfect example as it cost me $1.01 to make. I did a painted frame makeover and created a free Fall printable.

This 8×10 frame was a thrift store purchase of $1.01! The frame was a bit too dark for my home decor and a tad beat up. I knew exactly what I needed to do to create a simple fall decor art piece.

The frame needed to be painted, first and foremost.

I wiped clean the entire frame. I literally had just enough chalk paint at the bottom of this can to be able to paint two coats onto the frame.

When the frame was completely dry, I used 220 grit sandpaper to distress the frame. I wanted it to have a more rustic and weathered look. I then added a single coat of dark wax to the entire frame front.

This sweet concrete owl was another great deal. I found him last week at my local garden center for 90% off from $8.00. So, he was a grand total of .80 cents!

The distressing of the frame is my favorite part. It adds so much depth and character.

I chose to print the Fall printable onto white card stock for a more realistic art print. Feel free to print it on anything that you like.

My sincerest wish is to inspire you to create lovely¬†things for your own home. They don’t need to cost a lot of money to be beautiful or meaningful. I can’t wait to see what you create!
