This used picture frame that I salvaged from my MeMaw's garage sale toss pile was the perfect size for the project.
- Old wood picture frame (no glass needed)
- Acrylic paint (color of choice)
- Chicken wire (enough to fit your frame)
- Pliers (if frame has any unwanted nails or hardware)
- Sand paper
- Paper towel or cloth (for cleaning)
- Wire cutters
- Staple gun and staples
1. Wipe down frame and remove any unwanted nails, screws or hardware, so that you have a clean base to work with.
4. Paint frames with rough, quick brush strokes. No need to coat completely because the next step is sanding the paint. If done well, the result should already look a bit distressed.
