I have been trying my hand at woodworking lately. FUN!!! Here is a small project I started and finished in about 4 hours including painting and drying times. The frame is from plans off of Knock-Off Wood. I adjusted the plans to fit the label I have. The label is actually from an old dollar store calendar. I bought it years ago and loved the vintage labels and kept it to use sometime. I have finally got around to using at least one of them. I painted the frame with a cream color first and then sanded it and then put a wash of plum over that. Then I sanded just the edges a bit to let the cream color come through a bit. I thought it needed a little extra pop. I used a little metallic finish that rubs on. I went sparingly with it around the edges and around the inside of the frame. It's hard to see the gold from the pictures but it really makes the difference.
I am loving this frame!! The plans for the frame are here.
