The frame was black and I chose to sand it down to smooth it out. I then proceeded to paint it a bright turquoise color. It was a little bright at first and too put together looking. Yes, that's possible. So I took some sandpaper and roughed up a few spots to give it an older, distressed look like this.
However, I didn't want it to look too distressed and out of place compared to my other dorm decor. So I only sanded a little in certain places so it would look similar to the frame in the top left corner of the picture above.
Well, wah-lah! Here's the frame in all of it's wonderful turquoise glory.
Now there's something you don't see every day (hence this blog title).
After drying for 24 hours, I chose to seal it with a finishing spray that I picked up at Michael's.
Well that's how this frame is going to look FOR NOW. Keep your eyes peeled for a new post later this week to see what I turn this frame into!
