These thrift store frames didn’t look too bad when I found them. There were a few scratches and the backing was coming off. I knew with that detail around the edges they’d look great as painted frames aged with the new antiquing dust I’ve been working with. Plus, they were a bargain! Marked $1.50 but it was 20% off day!

First, I glued the backs around the outer edge with some of the E6000 glue. This is my favorite glue for jewelry but it works for just about everything.
I didn’t wait for it to dry. I just started painting, making sure I got the paint worked down into the details of the frame.
I let it sit for 30 minutes, then I wiped off the extra dust and buffed.
I am in love with the aged look of these frames!
Our June theme in the shop was weddings so I printed copies of these amazing old wedding postcards that I found at an antique shop and added them.
