Speckled Frame {Tutorial}

As part of our "Living Room Makeover" I've been adding touches of our new accent color. I had some blue spray paint left over from my Robin's Egg Wreath and decided to make a few accessories blue.

I had an old black frame that I wasn't using laying around in my craft room, and decided that it was going to be blue.

I wanted the paint to be a little distressed, or "speckled", and I LOVE the way it turned out.

Here's how you do it

Spray Paint
Water spray bottle

Lay your frame on a piece of paper, or drop cloth in a well ventilated area outside.

Spritz the frame with water leaving tiny misty drops. You don't want it so wet that the water is running off.

Immediately spray your frame with spray paint. Give it a good coat, because you'll only do one coat of paint.

Allow it to dry. The water droplets will create a fun SPECKLED look on your frame!!

Insert your favorite picture or printable and enjoy!
