Trash to Treasure #3

My friend Amy and I set out last weekend yard sailing and I found these beautiful frames. I picked them up and instantly my wheels started turning. I could think of all sorts of things to do with them. So I purchased them for .25 cents each. Yes, you did read that right! Wow is right!!!!!

I had some paint left over from some window panes I just painted for a vintage wedding. I will be blogging about them soon. I also had a cute bird stencil that I got at Hobby Lobby a while back. I started going through my paints in the garage and found some dark walnut stain which was perfect.

Frame #1 Before
Frame #2 Before

Step 1: I painted both of the frames a creamy off white

Step 2: In small sections add paint and wipe off right away with a paper towel.

 Step 3: On this one I used the stencil and just painted the bird on.

On this one I cut out a piece of card stock paper and painted it with chalkboard paint. I then used the same bird stencil and dry brushed the bird on. I wrote "Welcome" over the top of the bird with chalk.

 I found the perfect spot for this one on the Kitchen counter.

I put this one on my front porch. The photo is not the best due to it being so bright outside.
