On Monday I shared my #ModernMasters project and a Giveaway that I did for the campaign. I showed you picture frames that I painted with the champagne metallic color and mentioned I would share another project that I was going to do with the pretty painted frames.
I loved how these frames turned out, but I wanted them to be something more, so here is what I made with them.
When I laid the smaller frame inside the large frame, this is where the idea to put them together came from.
This is what they looked like before I used the awesome Modern Masters Metallic Paint on them.
I primed the frames using Zinsser Bulls Eye 123 primer.
The next step was to paint them with Modern Masters Champagne Metallic Paint. Once they were completely dry, I mixed the Modern Masters black pearl paint with a glaze. I applied the glaze on both frames and wiped off with a dry cloth. The glazing technique allows you to wipe off a little or a lot so you get the aging effect. I love how glazing gives the pieces a deeper color and it enhances the edges of the frames. If you would like to see the black pearl paint color, check out my drop leaf table that I shared with you on Monday.
I cut a piece of wood to fit in the back of the large picture frame and painted it with a black spray paint. I then sprayed the wood piece with spray adhesive and applied the fabric to the wood.
I cut a piece of mirror to fit inside the smaller picture frame and attached the small frame to the fabric covered wood using screws. Once I attached the smaller frame, I placed the wood piece inside the large frame and used picture frames accessories to hold the back in place. I attached a hanger-on the back and she is ready to hang on the wall.
In case you missed Monday’s post, Modern Masters offered my readers a chance to win some of this great paint.
