Thrift Store Wall Decor Makeover

 


Greetings Cottage Friends,

I've been working on makeover projects this week. Give me home decor screaming for a makeover, place a paint brush in my hand, and I'm a happy girl.

I found a wall hanging at the thrift store, with one of my favorite scripture verses, for $4. I liked everything about the piece, except the frame.  That didn't stop me from buying it though; I knew I could makeover the frame.

Half way through the painting process I realized I hadn't taken a "before" photo, but I did manage to get a portion of the frame so you can see what it looked like before I painted it.


 I felt like the colors used on the frame were bland and didn't do justice to the raised design.  I gave the whole frame one coat of Waverly steel chalk paint, and a dry brush of Waverly white chalk paint only on the raised portion of the frame.


Now this wall hanging works with my style.



The scripture is one that I have clung to through difficult times, and it has always encouraged me.

Hugs,

  7. Nancy, I want you to know that your posts bring me comfort. I feel that I can actually hear your calming voice as I read.
    On June 6, 2020 my daughter Emily had a massive stroke and was life flighted to Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville. She underwent brain surgery which saved her life and I praise my Lord for that. She is still in a rehabilitation center near me. Em is fighting hard to gain some independence. I have been so afraid for her. Your topics bring me comfort.
    I love you sweet friend. Thank you again and again.
