Since I live by the beach, during the summer I love to decorate my house like a shabby beach cottage and I often make my own decor to pinch pennies and get the look I want. Because I have a new baby and take a ton of pictures of her, a while back I bought a ton (Seriously like 20) small cheap frames from Marshalls ($4.99 each) to use for gifts. As you can imagine I still have extra’s so this week we are going to transform one into a Shabby Summer Frame!
What you need:
-Frame -Paint & Paintbrush -Burlap
-Glue Gun -Frame hooks (2) -Twine
-Sea Shells -Sandpaper -Glue Dots
Choose your frame, remove backing and glass (save for later), then lightly sand your frame.
Sanded frame.Choose your paint color, then apply only one coat. The great thing is you don’t need to worry about it coating the frame completely.Frame after one coat.
Lightly sand the frame in areas to increase the shaby-ness.
*Note: Cut it a little bigger than the backing to wrap around. To make it fit into the frame I cut a portion of the backing to make it smaller.
