~upcycled thrift store find~

by - May 31, 2018

Today I'm sharing a quick makeover I gave to this thrift store wooden "frame."  I wish I had taken a before picture so you could see the full transformation.  It was a really ugly turquoise hue.  So first things first, I gave it a few coats of white spray paint.
Once the paint was dry, I gave it a good sanding.  Next I added some vintage sheet music to the back.  It's hard to see, but that is a touch of French book paper on the bottom.
I plan on using it as a shadowbox of sorts, so I added some random embellished match boxes and a small bottle.  I'm still playing around with it, but overall I'm loving the new look!
