Complete step by step tutorial below!
Do you like to make home decor for your home? There is something about making it yourself so it perfectly matches your own personality and style. I love it!
Recently, I was given a bunch of frames from work. They are really nice frames but have the company logo on them. I love my job but that doesn't necessarily mean I want it plastered all over my house. So I came up with a fun way to paint over the frames and create some beautiful decor for my home at the same time.

How to Make Wood Look Old with White Paint
Begin by taking the frame apart so you are left with the outer wood frame to work with. The frame started out as white and I painted it a simple brown with acrylic paint.
The look I was going for was a scratched/weathered look. To get that look I scrunched up a grocery bag and used that to paint on the white over the brown.
After the frame had been painted with the grocery bag, grab a piece of sandpaper and go over the frame a bit more to rough it up.
Apply Vinyl Quote to Glass Pane
I used my Cricut to cut the quote out of brown vinyl and applied it to the glass of the frame. The quote I used is one of my favorite quotes, "A goal not written down is only a wish".
Assemble the Distressed Frame & Quote
Add a rectangle of a cute patterned paper in the frame and my Distressed Frame with the quote is finished!
